The Corrections (Used Paperback) - Jonathan Franzen
A comic, tragic epic stretching from the Midwest of the Midcentury to the Wall Street and Easter Europe of today, The Corrections brings and old-fashioned world of civic virtue and sexual inhibitions into violent collision with the era of home surveillance, hands-off parenting, do-it-yourself mental health care, and globalized greed.
