Jonathan Franzen: Crossroads

Jonathan Franzen

Jonathan Franzen—award-winning author of The Corrections, Freedom and Purity—returns with a much-anticipated new novel, Crossroads, a sweeping look at the country’s shifting culture as told through the experiences of a Midwestern family in crisis one winter’s day in the early 1970s.

“As complications stack up for the Hildebrandts, they each confront temptation and epiphany, failure and love,” writes Publishers Weekly. “Throughout, Franzen exhibits his remarkable ability to build suspense through fraught interpersonal dynamics. It’s irresistible.”
