Franzen’s Back

The Millions has noticed that Jonathan Franzen’s new novel–his first since 2001’s The Corrections–is now available for pre-order. According to the Amazon product description, Freedom is “an epic of contemporary love and marriage,” in which “freedom comically and tragically captures the temptations and burdens of liberty: the thrills of teenage lust, the shaken compromises of middle age, the wages of suburban sprawl, the heavy weight of empire.”
