    The winner of the National Book Award, the New York Times No.1 Bestseller and the worldwide literary sensation, 'The Corrections' has established itself as a truly great American novel. The Lamberts -- Enid and Alfred and their three grown-up children -- are a troubled family living in a troubled age. Alfred is ill and as his condition worsens the whole family must face the failures, secrets and long-buried hurts that haunt them if they are to make the corrections that each desperately needs. Stretching from the Midwest in the mid-century to Wall Street and Eastern Europe in the age of globalised greed, The Corrections brings an old-time America of freight trains and civic duty into wild collision with the era of home surveillance, hands-off parenting, do-it-yourself mental healthcare, and New Economy millionaires. It confirms Jonathan Franzen's position as one of the most brilliant interpreters of American society and the American soul currently at work.

    O avtorju

    -Jonathan Franzen-

    Jonathan Franzen (1959) je avtor štirih romanov, najnovejšega, Svoboda ter Strong Motion, The Twenty-Seventh City in Popravki (Študentska založba, 2005). Za slednjega je leta 2001 prejel ameriško nacionalno knjižno nagrado in postal najbolj brani in slavljeni ameriški pisatelj srednje generacije, hkrati pa je za branje navdušil veliko tistih, ki so knjige sicer bolj redko prijeli v roke. Franzen je tudi odličen esejist, kar je dokazal z zbirkama How to Be Alone in Območje nelagodja (Študentska založba, 2010). Spomladi 2011 je kot gost Fabule obiskal Slovenijo.
