I was introduced to Jonathan Franzen from reading 2010's Freedom and right away I was impressed by his intricate yet deceptively simple writing style; expansive, yet concise. His attention to detail and in-the-moment conversational interplay appealed to me and Freedom easily became one of my favorites. A year later, after loving a recent essay of his titled Farther Away, I mentally noted Franzen as an author to watch. And now that I've read The Corrections, a pointed work of American middle-class desperation, I consider him one of the most talented authors currently living.

I can't say I'd ever want to personally know a family like the Lamberts. Enid and Alfred may be well into their retirement years, but that doesn't mean they don't harbor a lifetime of resentments and are more than willing to inflict their pain on others. And their adult children, Gary, Chip and Denise, are frequently despicable individuals. Still, I grew to love them all. Disappointments and forgiveness are what make us human.
