Product description

Review

‘Franzen’s words crackle with wit humour and wisdom’ Shortlist

‘Franzen is arguably America’s greatest living novelist … In this anthology of magazine assignments, social criticism and cobweb-clearing travel journalism, he writes continually about writing and reading, luxuriating in language and sticking up for literature for literature’s sake. It’s a mostly thrilling journey …Franzen’s meditations on literature form the meat of this collection …Though seemingly preoccupied with writing and literature, his essays travel many subjects and moods.’ Paul Clements, Daily Telegraph.

‘In a book that is never less than superbly intelligent…Franzen’s wit and loving kindness comes as abrupt surprises as if a glossy, paunchy bishop has suddenly started to play hopscotch.’ Richard Davernport-Hines, The Spectator

About the Author

Jonathan Franzen's work includes four novels (The Twenty-Seventh City, Strong Motion, The Corrections, Freedom), two collections of essays (Farther Away, How To Be Alone), a memoir (The Discomfort Zone), and, most recently, The Kraus Project. He is recognised as one of the best American writers of our age and has won many awards. He lives in New York City and Santa Cruz, California.
