Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. The Book People
Jonathan Franzen is an author and essayist who was born on 17 August, 1959. Outspoken on contemporary and social issues, his longer form of storytelling has helped to make him such a critically and commercially acclaimed novelist.
Best known for 2001’s The Corrections (a National Book Award winner and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction), Jonathan Franzen is also the author of 2010’s Freedom. It was around the publication of this book that he was named by Time Magazine as ‘the Great American novelist’. He followed this up with 2015’s Purity and now lives between New York and California.
Hailed as a "modern masterpiece", Freedom is a novel about contemporary life, love and marriage. The story of the Berglunds, their son Joey, their daughter Jessica and their friend Richard Katz, this sprawling epic covers the beginning and ending of love, the awkwardness of teenage lust, the unexpectedness of adult life as well as the rivalries and betrayals all families face. The human story looks at why things never quite work out as they 'should'. An international bestseller that is full of sharp observations about modern America, Jonathan Franzen's Freedom is an intensive novel that has drawn plaudits from many sources, with the Independent on Sunday saying it is: "Deeper, funnier, sadder and truer than a work of fiction has any right to be."
