Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Enid Lambert begins to worry about her husband when he starts to withdraw and lose himself in negativity and depression as he faces Parkinson's disease. Winner of the National Book Award.


Review:

"...THE CORRECTIONS...recalls no novel so much as John Cheever's THE WAPSHOT SCANDAL. THE CORRECTIONS is just as funny and sad and smart as that masterpiece, and Franzen, like Cheever, reminds us of the timelessness of human folly."

Stewart O'Nan, Atlantic Monthly, September 2001

Review:

"Clearly Mr. Franzen's novel would have benefited enormously from a strict editing job....All in all, however, THE CORRECTIONS remains a remarkably poised performance, the narrative held together by myriad meticulously observed details and tiny leitmotifs that create a mosaiclike picture of American in the waning years of the 20th century....By turns funny and corrosive, portentous and affecting, THE CORRECTIONS not only shows us two generations of an American family struggling to make sense of their lives, but also cracks open a window on a sullen country lurching its way toward the millennium."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 09/04/2001

Book Description: St Martin s Press, United States, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 210 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. Winner of the 2001 National Book Award for Fiction After almost fifty years as a wife and mother, Enid Lambert is ready to have some fun. Unfortunately, her husband, Alfred, is losing his sanity to Parkinson s disease, and their children have long since flown the family nest to the catastrophes of their own lives. The oldest, Gary, a once-stable portfolio manager and family man, is trying to convince his wife and himself, despite clear signs to the contrary, that he is not clinically depressed. The middle child, Chip, has lost his seemingly secure academic job and is failing spectacularly at his new line of work. And Denise, the youngest, has escaped a disastrous marriage only to pour her youth and beauty down the drain of an affair with a married man-or so her mother fears. Desperate for some pleasure to look forward to, Enid has set her heart on an elusive goal: bringing her family together for one last Christmas at home. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780312421274
