9781897082102: The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen (Bookclub in a Box Discussion Guide)

The Bookclub-in-a-Box guide to Franzenís novel takes readers deeper into the world of Enid and Alfred Lambert and their family of three children: Gary, Chip and Denise.

It is Enidís goal to bring her grown and dispersed family back together for a Christmas celebration; a last chance to have everyone together before something serious happens to Alfred, a fast-failing victim of Parkinsonís disease. The entire focus of the novel is directed towards this last scene.

The Corrections is a fast-paced and very funny novel. The characters and the readers experience a wide range of emotional reactions and remind us that we all have unique family stories. Let Bookclub-in-a-Box be your exclusive guide as you compare your own life to this tale of the Lambert family.

Bookclub-in-a-Box follows Franzenís fictional family on their poignant, laugh-out-loud journey and opens up the following ideas:

- Franzen has created outrageous characters who behave shockingly in order to better illustrate the idea behind the title, The Corrections.

- Franzen explores the wide range of emotional reactions in this unique but dysfunctional family, and investigates the issues that preoccupy everyoneís individual family.

- The guide looks at how the ideas of the philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer, who considered life to be a series of difficult trials over which we have little or no control, apply to this novel.

- This is the novel that Oprah Winfrey Ďde-listedí from her television bookclub. Read this guide to understand why.

Every Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style and interesting background information on the novel and the author, as well as a complementary RAG (Read-Along-Guide), a quick reference pamphlet offering interesting facts and questions to consider while reading the novel.
