Review

‘Dazzling’ Guardian

‘Furiously funny’ Telegraph

‘Superbly readable, it is the work of a novelist at the height of his powers … This new work by an American master of realism has novelistic pleasures in abundance’ Sunday Times

‘Purity makes the most compelling reading, and Franzen reveals himself here to be even more a master than ever’ Evening Standard

‘It has kept me up every night for a week, and now that I’m done, I’ll miss its wit, its messed-up characters and its emotional complexity’ Financial Times

‘Franzen’s most fleet-footed, least self-conscious and most intimate novel yet … Franzen has added a new octave to his voice’ New York Times

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
