Description
In this collection—a follow-up to How to Be Alone, from the National Book Award–winning author of The Corrections and Freedom—Jonathan Franzen gathers together essays and speeches written mostly since 2007, returning with renewed vigor to the human and literary themes that have long preoccupied him. Whether recounting his violent encounter with bird poachers in Cyprus, examining his mixed feelings about the suicide of his friend and rival David Foster Wallace, or offering a moving and witty take on the ways in which technology has changed how people express their love, these pieces deliver on Franzen's implicit promise to conceal nothing.
