Jonathan Franzen won the National Book Award for The Corrections, the story of a Midwestern family’s journey through the 21st century. His other work includes the novels Freedom, Purity, Strong Motion, and The Twenty-Seventh City, two essay collections, a memoir, and two works of translation. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the German Akademie der Kunste, and the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, Franzen has earned the Whiting Writer's Award, the American Academy's Berlin Prize, the Budapest Grand Prize, and a Guggenheim Fellowship. The first in a trilogy, his new novel is about the challenges a religious family experiences while living in the Chicago suburbs in the early 1970s.
