Jennifer Egan's new, well reviewed novel, "A Visit from the Goon Squad," contains a chapter set in the 70's/80's San Francisco punk scene. The Mabuhay, the Mutants, Avengers, Sleepers, Dead Kennedys and more are mentioned. On page 35 of the hardback book, the novel mentions Joe Rees and Target Video. Very cool to be in a widely read novel. A pretty unexpected moment in my summer reading!
