In his first novel on account that The Corrections, Jonathan Franzen has given us an epic of up to date love and marriage. Freedom comically and tragically captures the enticements and burdens of liberty: the thrills of minor lust, the shaken compromises of heart age, the wages of suburban sprawl, the heavy weight of empire. In charting the error and joys of Walter and Patty Berglund as they try to profit the right way to dwell in an ever extra complicated international, Franzen has produced an indelible and deeply relocating portrait of our time.
