Description
Information
Passionate, independent-minded non-fiction from the international bestselling author of 'The Corrections'.

Although his subjects range from the sex-advice industry to the way a supermax prison works, each piece wrestles with familiar themes of Franzen's writing: the erosion of civic life and private dignity, and the hidden persistence of loneliness in postmodern, imperial America.

Recent pieces include a moving essay on his father's struggle with Alzheimer's disease. These essays record what Franzen calls "a moment away from an angry and frightened isolation toward an acceptance - even a celebration - of being a reader and a writer".
