Product description

Review

The work of a writer at the top of his game-limber and lovely, delivering deep insights with delicacy and grace. --Sarah Crown, The Guardian

Franzen, unlike many, listens. It's what makes him one of the best living writers of fictional dialogue, and it's what makes his arguments productively provocative. --Charles Arrowsmith, The Washington Post

[Franzen's] turning over rocks along the shore and finding noteworthy details beneath. --Bill McKibben, The New York Times Book Review

If, as F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, the "test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function", then Franzen has passed with flying colours. --Andrew Gallix, The Irish Times

The End of the End of the Earth feels carefully crafted around a central concern: 'How do we find meaning in our actions when the world seems to be coming to an end?' . . . Franzen proves himself up to the challenge of the essay as a form, as 'something hazarded, not definitive, not authoritative, ' and of a subject so vast and important that it affects us all. Ignore the tweets, read the book. --Carl Wilkinson, Financial Times

About the Author
