The Corrections

by Franzen, Jonathan

Jonathan Franzen is an American novelist and essayist. This novel, The Corrections, is the winner of the National Book Awards for the year 2001. The book has been described as having substantial breadth and well worth reading. It is centered upon a wish by a wife and mother to have her family home again for one last Christmas. Enid lambert has been caring for her husband, Alfred, who is losing his mind to Parkinson’s disease and her children have scattered and are running their own catastrophic lives. The author is quoted as saying that his novel focuses on topics such as the multi-generational transmission of family dysfunction and the waste inherent in today's consumer economy, and each of the characters "embody the conflicting consciousness and the personal and social dramas of our era.” What emerges from the high drama is the wildly brilliant, hilarious feast of cultural analysis.

 

International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award Nominee (2003), National Book Award for Fiction (2001), James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction (2002), Time Magazine 100 Best English Language Novels of the Twentieth Century
