The Discomfort Zone: A Personal History by Jonathan Franzen
The Discomfort Zone: A Personal History

timmothy, January 1, 2012

Although this is a re-read for me, this is still the best book I read in 2011. Considering the number of National Book Awards and Booker Prizes that were included in the year's reading list, this offers some considerable token of my esteem of Franzen as a wordsmith of both novels and nonfiction.
