Having had a moratorium for the last 10 years on new novels, while I catch up with 18th and 19th century works, the following Telegraph review did however catch my eye, intrigued me and I thought of my American balletalk co-posters.

Thanks so much for posting this, leonid. I was unable to get through 'The Corrections' myself but would be interested to hear from others who have read more of Franzen.

I'm trying to get through Jonathan Franzen's Freedom, but I must confess that I eagerly lay it aside for something--anything--else the slightest provocation. I didn't get the fuss over The Corrections and I get the fuss over Freedom even less. I'm in that sour place of being determined to finish it just so I can gripe about it with impunity.
