Search - List of Books by Jonathan Franzen

"It's just a matter of writing the kind of book I enjoy reading. Something better be happening at the beginning, and then on every page after, or I get irritated." -- Jonathan Franzen
Jonathan Franzen (born August 17, 1959) is an American novelist and essayist. His third novel, The Corrections (2001), a sprawling, satirical family drama, drew widespread critical acclaim, earned Franzen a National Book Award, and was a finalist for the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. His most recent novel is Freedom, published in August 2010.

Franzen writes for The New Yorker magazine. He is also known for his 1996 Harper's essay "Perchance to Dream" bemoaning the state of literature, and for the 2001 controversy surrounding the selection of The Corrections for Oprah Winfrey's book club. In 2010, he attracted further attention while on a visit to London when a literary event was stormed and his spectacles were whisked from his face, a ransom note for $100,000 deposited and a police chase initiated through the city.
