Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
A New York Times Notable Book of the Year   The Discomfort Zone is Jonathan Franzen’s  tale of growing up, squirming in his own über-sensitive skin, from a “small and fundamentally ridiculous person,” into an adult with strong inconvenient passions. Whether he’s writing about the explosive dynamics of a Christian youth fellowship in the 1970s, the effects of Kafka’s fiction on his protracted quest to lose his virginity, or the web of connections between bird watching, his all-consuming marriage, and the problem of global warming, Franzen is always feelingly engaged with the world we live in now.  The Discomfort Zone is a wise, funny, and gorgeously written self-portrait by one of America’s finest writers.

Summary: Praise for "How to Be Alone": "This collection emphasizes Franzen's elegance, acumen and daring as an essayist, with an intellectually engaging self-awareness as formidable as Joan Didion's." --Janet Maslin, "The New York Times" "Jonathan Franzen is one of the most nuanced minds at works in the dwindling republic of letters." --Richard Lacayo, "Time" "There's some boldness, then, in how Franzen reclaims his pain on the page, owning up to it and, as any good journalist will, making it our own, too." --John Freeman, "The San Francisco Chronicle" "Franzen's ability to articulate the tension between our intimate and public lives is his great strength." --Valerie Ellis, "The "Boston" Review" "How to Be Alone" reaffirms the novelist's prerogative to engage in social criticism And Franzen's calm, passionate critical authority derives not from any special expertise in criminology, neurology or postal science, but rather from the fact that, as a novelist, he is principally concerned with the messy architecture of the self." --A.O. Scott, "The New York Times Book Review". Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0312426402
