The new Jonathan Franzen novel Freedom will be here in a matter of days! Early reviews can be found here and here, and Franzen will be featured on the cover of Time Magazine with the issue hitting newsstands this Friday. (The issue is now online.) It is the first time in 10 years that a living American novelist has been featured on the mag's cover, according to the NYT. I for one cannot wait to get my hands on a copy, and will surely devour the book in a matter of day. I read The Correction at a feverish pace, even going so far as to skip class one day to finish a section of the novel. (I actually went to the university, but decided to sit in a desk just outside the classroom to read.) From the two excerpts that I have read so far, Freedom will be on track with that thrilling novel. Bring it, Mr. Franzen!
