Jonathan Earl Franzen (created August 17, 1959) is an American novelist and essayist. His latest novel, “Freedom” (2010), resulted in a contentious look on the cover of “Time” magazine alongside the headline “Great American Novelist”. His 1996 “Harper’s” essay “Perchance to Dream” bemoaned the state of modern literature. Oprah Winfrey’s book club choice in 2001 of “The Corrections” led to a much publicized feud with all the talk show host. Recently, Franzen has become recognized for his purveyance of views on everything from social media services like Twitter (“the greatest reckless medium”) as well as the proliferation of ebooks (“only not long-lasting enough”) to the disintegration of Europe (“The folks making the choices in Europe are bankers. The technicians of finance are making the choices there. As well as the self destruction of America (“nearly a rogue state”). What’s all this other stuff?””. Franzen also suggested the brand new novel would likely also be long, including “I Have let go of any delusion that I am a writer of 150-page novels. I want room to let things turn around over time and see them in the entire lives of other characters, not only the one character. For better or worse, one point of view never appears to get it done for me”.
