how is it i've never read a jonathan franzen novel? i picked up his book "the corrections" from the library yesterday. it was the only one they had on the shelf. it's a small town library and sometimes i feel frustrated with it's limited offerings. have you read franzen? do you like, and if so what's your favorite?
i have always gravitated toward historical novels. although, a foreign setting often boosts a contemporary book's appeal. perhaps i just like to read about people and places different from me.
from what i've heard franzen books may strike uncomfortably close to home. i was fascinated with a radio interview i heard of his recently.
have any other book suggestions to share?
