FREEDOM

Patty and Walter Berglund were the new pioneers of old St. Paul―the gentrifiers, the hands-on parents, the avant-garde of the Whole Foods generation. Patty was the ideal sort of neighbor, who could tell you where to recycle your batteries and how to get the local cops to actually do their job. She was an enviably perfect mother and the wife of Walter's dreams. Together with Walter―environmental lawyer, commuter cyclist, total family man―she was doing her small part to build a better world. But now, in the new millennium, the Berglunds have become a mystery. Why has their teenage son moved in with the aggressively Republican family next door? Why has Walter taken a job working with Big Coal? What exactly is Richard Katz―outré rocker and Walter's college best friend and rival―still doing in the picture? Most of all, what has happened to Patty? Why has the bright star of Barrier Street become "a very different kind of neighbor," an implacable Fury coming unhinged before the street's attentive eyes?
Here Jonathan Franzen has given us an epic of contemporary love and marriage. Freedom comically and tragically captures the temptations and burdens of liberty: the thrills of teenage lust, the shaken compromises of middle age, the wages of suburban sprawl, the heavy weight of empire. In charting the mistakes and joys of Freedom's characters as they struggle to learn how to live in an ever more confusing world, Franzen has produced an indelible and deeply moving portrait of our time.

The Author
Ο ΤΖΟΝΑΘΑΝ ΦΡΑΝΖΕΝ γεννήθηκε στο Ιλινόι το 1959 και μεγάλωσε στα προάστια του Σεντ Λούις. Αποφοίτησε από το Κολέγιο Σουάρθμορ το 1981, σπούδασε με υποτροφία στο Ελεύθερο Πανεπιστήμιο του Βερολίνου και κατόπιν εργάστηκε στο Πανεπιστήμιο Χάρβαρντ, σε σεισμολογικό εργαστήριο. Σήμερα ζει στη Νέα Υόρκη. Η συγγραφική ιδιοφυΐα του αναγνωρίστηκε από την πρώτη κιόλας εμφάνισή του στα αμερικανικά γράμματα, αλλά η καθιέρωση και η μεγάλη επιτυχία ήρθε με το τρίτο του μυθιστόρημα, ΟΙ ΔΙΟΡΘΩΣΕΙΣ. Στη συνέχεια, ο Φράνζεν απέσπασε ποικίλες διακρίσεις και, τελικά, τιμήθηκε με το σπουδαιότερο λογοτεχνικό βραβείο της Αμερικής, το National Book Award. Από τις Εκδόσεις ΨΥΧΟΓΙΟΣ κυκλοφορούν επίσης τα μυθιστορήματά του ΚΡΑΔΑΣΜΟΙ, Η ΕΙΚΟΣΤΗ ΕΒΔΟΜΗ ΠΟΛΙΤΕΙΑ, ΑΓΝΗ και ΟΙ ΔΙΟΡΘΩΣΕΙΣ.
