The Corrections / Jonathan Franzen

The Corrections is a grandly entertain-

ig novel for the new century—a comic, trag-masterpiece about a family breaking down in и age of easy fixes.

After almost fifty years as a wife and motilar, Enid Lambert is ready to have some fun. I 'nfortunately, her husband, Alfred, is losing I is sanity to Parkinson’s disease, and their children have long since flown the family nest to the catastrophes of their own lives. The oldest, Gary, a once-stable portfolio manager and family man, is trying to convince his wife and himself, despite clear signs to the contrary, that he is not clinically depressed. The middle child, Chip, has lost his seemingly secure academic job and is failing spectacularly at his new line of work. And Denise, the youngest, has escaped a disastrous marriage only to pour her youth and beauty down the drain of an affair with a married man—or so her mother fears. Desperate for some pleasure to look forward to, Enid has set her heart on an elusive goal: bringing her family together for one last Christmas at home.

Stretching from the Midwest at midcentury to the Wall Street and Eastern Europe of today, The Corrections brings an old-fashioned world of civic virtue and sexual inhibitions into violent collision with the era of home surveillance, hands-off parenting, do-it-yourself mental health care, and globalized greed. Richly realistic, darkly hilarious, deeply humane, it confirms Jonathan Franzen as one of our most brilliant interpreters of American society and the American soul.

***
"Funny and deeply sad, large-hearted and merciless, The Corrections is a testament to the range and depth of pleasures great fiction affords."

—DAVID FOSTER WALLACE
"Jonathan Franzen has built a powerful novel out of the swarming consciousness of a marriage, a family, a whole culture—our culture. And he has done it with a sympathy and expansiveness that bend the edgy modern temper to a generous breadth of vision. " 'ђ —DON DeLILLO
"In its complexity, its scrutinizing and utterly unsentimental humanity, and its grasp of the subtle relationships between domestic drama and global events, The Corrections stands in the company of Mann’s Buddenbrooks and DeLillo’s White Noise. It is a major accomplishment."

—MICHAEL CUNNINGHAM
"Jonathan Franzen’s novel The Corrections is the brightest, boldest, and most ambitious novel I’ve read in many years. With this dazzling work, Franzen gives notice that from now on, he is only going to hiftit with the big cats."
