Description
(One of the New York Times Ten Best Books of 2010 and an Oprah Book Club Selection) In his first novel since the brilliant National Book Award winner The Corrections, Jonathan Franzen has given us another epic of contemporary love and marriage. Patty and Walter Berglund were the new pioneers of old St. Paul—the gentrifiers, the hands-on parents, the avant-garde of the Whole Foods generation. So why are they falling apart before their neighbors' eyes? Freedom comically and tragically captures the temptations and burdens of liberty: the thrills of teenage lust, the shaky compromises of middle age, the wages of suburban sprawl, and the heavy weight of empire. It has earned Franzen critical comparisons to Sinclair Lewis, John Steinbeck, Tom Wolfe, John Updike, and Philip Roth, while Oprah Winfrey selected Freedom as the first book club selection for her final season of The Oprah Winfrey Show. David LeDoux earned an AudioFile Earphones Award for his remarkably multifaceted reading of this unabridged audiobook.

"Masterful describes not only Jonathan Franzen's latest novel but also David Ledoux's reading of the book.... Ledoux's performance is every bit the equal of Franzen's brilliant dialogue and vivid characters ... imbuing each character with a unique voice and tone."—AudioFile

"A masterpiece of American fiction.... Like all great novels, Freedom does not just tell an engrossing story. It illuminates, through the steady radiance of its author's profound moral intelligence, the world we thought we knew."—NYTBR
