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. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

'By sheer force of his imaginative writing and his unsheathed views of American life, Franzen succeeds in joining together a love story, a family story, and a corporate-cum-environmental story…Distinctly original.' The New York Times

'No doubt about it: Jonathan Franzen is one of the most extraordinary writers around.' Newsweek

'Ingeniously put together…His ear for American vernacular is flawless…His gift for description has a kinetic immediacy.' The Seattle Times

'Bold, layered…an elaborate construct, with the stuff of several books crammed into one…An affirmation of Franzen's fierce imagination and distinctive seriocomic voice.' New York Times Book Review

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
