The Keep
The Keep


Prior to devouring every page of Jennifer Egan’s The Keep, I made the surreptitious decision to read, for the first time, Frankenstein and Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Besides similar gothic settings, the books focus on the primal need to better understand the world by making a unique contribution to it, or “to be known,” as the main trouble-maker in Egan’s book puts it. And, as each story climaxes, towards these aspirations, efforts end with deadly consequences. – Recommended by Stacey, City Lights Books
