The winner of THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD, the New York Times No. 1 Bestseller
and the worldwide literary sensation, The Corrections has established
itself as a truly great American novel. The Lamberts -- Enid and Alfred and
their three grown-up children -- are a troubled family living in a troubled
age. Alfred is ill and as his condition worsens the whole family must face
the failures, secrets and long-buried hurts that haunt them if they are to
make the corrections that each desperately needs. Stretching from the
Midwest in the mid-century to Wall Street and Eastern Europe in the age of
globalised greed, The Corrections brings an old-time America of freight
trains and civic duty into wild collision with the era of home
surveillance, hands-off parenting, do-it-yourself mental healthcare, and
New Economy millionaires. It announces Jonathan Franzen as one of the most
brilliant interpreters of American society and the American soul.
