Farther Away: Essays - Jonathan Franzen

Jonathan Franzen has a bounty of opinions about everything. His latest collection of essays, speeches, and interviews ranges in topics from technology (and its detrimental effect on everything in society) to his deep love of birding to his complex feelings on David Foster Wallace’s death. Whether I agreed with what Franzen had to say in these essays became less and less important the further into the book I got, so taken was I with his prose. Sometimes laugh-out-loud funny and sometimes achingly sad, every essay reflects Franzen’s skill as a writer and passion for his subject. Preachy in the best possible way, Farther Away (Picador, $16) is full of both conviction and exquisitely rendered sentence structure.
