en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – July 2007
From the author of 'Freedom', a richly realistic and darkly hilarious masterpiece about a family breakdown in an age of easy fixes. After fifty years as a wife and mother, Enid Lambert is ready to have some fun. Unfortunately her husband, Alfred, is losing his sanity, and their children have long since fled for the catastrophes of their own lives. As Alfred's condition worsens and the Lamberts are forced to face their secrets and failures, Enid sets her heart on one last family Christmas. Bringing the old world of civic virtue and sexual inhibition into violent collision with the era of hands-off parenting, do-it-yourself mental healthcare and globalised greed, 'The Corrections' confirms Jonathan Franzen as one of the most brilliant interpreters of the American soul.

" You will laugh, wince, groan, weep, leave the table and maybe the country, promise never to go home again, and be reminded of why you read serious fiction in the first place." --"The New York Review of Books"
" Marvelous . . . Everything we want in a novel--except, when it' s rocking along, for it never to be over." --"The New York Times Book Review"
" Jonathan Franzen has built a powerful novel out of the swarming consciousness of a marriage, a family, a whole culture--our culture." --Don DeLillo
" Looms as a model for what ambitious storytelling can still say about modern life . . . Franzen swings for the fences and clears them with yards to spare." --"San Francisco Chronicle"
" The novel we' ve been waiting for...a stunning anatomy of family dysfunction...a contemporary novel that will endure." --"Esquire"
" In its complexity, its scrutinizing and utterly unsentimental humanity, and its grasp of the subtle relationships between domestic drama and global events....It is a major accomplishment." --Michael Cunningham
" Frighteningly, luminously authentic." --"The Boston Globe"
" A genuine masterpiece . . . This novel is a wisecracking, eloquent, heartbreaking beauty." --"Elle"
" The brightest, boldest, and most ambitious novel I' ve read in many years." --Pat Conroy
" Brilliant . . . Almost unbearably lifelike." --"The New York Observer"
" Funny and deeply sad, large-hearted and merciless, "The Corrections" is a testament to the range and depth of pleasures great fiction affords." --David FosterWallace
