Guard Your Freedom! Franzen-Snatching Afoot

Jonathan Franzen’s new novel won’t be out until the end of the month, and the copies currently floating around are are in hot demand.

Writes NPR’s Alan Cheuse in his review:

Readers have a lot of high hope for this one, and there’s even some thievery going on: I couldn’t set my reading copy down on a table at my local coffee bar without someone walking off with it while I put in my order. It could be the title, too: “Freedom.”

Consider yourself warned.
