Announcing Oprah's New Book Club Selection:
Freedom by Jonathan Franzen, the National Book Award-winning author of The Corrections. We have a large number of copies available for purchase at 20% off. We also have a small number of signed copies available at the regular price.
Freedom is a darkly comedic novel about family; fans of The Corrections will recognize the strains of suburban tragedy afflicting St. Paul, Minnesota's Walter and Patty Berglund, once-gleaming gentrifiers now marred in the eyes of the community. Franzen's intensely realized characters struggle to learn how to live in an ever-confusing world - one with the temptations and burdens of liberty, the thrills of teenage lust, the shaken compromises of middle age, the wages of suburban sprawl, and the heavy weight of empire.
“Passionately imagined, psychologically exacting, and shrewdly satirical, Franzen's spiraling epic exposes the toxic ironies embedded in American middle-class life and reveals just how destructive our muddled notions of entitlement and freedom are and how obliviously we squander life and love.” — Booklist starred review
