Farther Away – Jonathan Franzen

Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom received huge coverage and critical acclaim, finding its way on to no less than thirty two ‘Book of the Year lists’ and securing the Number 1 spot in Time Magazine’s Best Fiction Books of 2010.

In this new collection, Franzen returns to non-fiction and tackles, in speeches and essays, human and literary topics that have long preoccupied him. These pieces were written in the last five years, the same time period he was working on Freedom and cover such subjects as diverse as his mixed feelings about the suicide of his friend and rival David Foster Wallace, the ways that technology has changed how people express their love and his violent encounter with bird poachers in Cyprus.

Farther Away is remarkable, personal and provocative writing from a man hailed as a great American novelist.
