The Discomfort Zone

The Discomfort Zone Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Discomfort Zone is Franzen's memoir of growth from his boyhood as a "small and fundamentally ridiculous person," through an adolescence both excruciating and strangely happy, into an adult with embarrassing and unexpected passions. It's also a portrait of a Midwestern middle-class family weathering the turbulence of the 1970s and a vivid personal history of an America turning its back on a certain idealism.

Daring, honest, and written with the comic scrutiny and unqualified affection that marks Franzen's fiction, The Discomfort Zone tells of the formation of one young mind in the crucible of an everyday American family.

Synopsis:

An intimate, daring, and sparkling autobiography is delivered by the award-winning author of "The Corrections." Unabridged. 6 CDs.

About the Author

Jonathan Franzen is the author of numerous books, among them The Twenty-Seventh City, How to Be Alone, and the hugely successful The Corrections, winner of the National Book Award. He lives in New York City.
