Praise for "Farther Away
"
"This is Franzen at his finest . . . Narcissism must never be confused with love. This is Franzen's distilled wisdom . . . He is unflinching about the price of empathy . . . This is a book for those interested in how to live as well as how to write." --Sarah Sands, "Evening Standard"

Praise for Jonathan Franzen:

"A literary genius for our time." --Jonathan Jones, "The Guardian"

"Franzen is arguably America's greatest living novelist . . . He writes continually about writing and reading, luxuriating in language and sticking up for literature for literature's sake." --Paul Clements, "The Daily Telegraph"

"Never less than superbly intelligent."

--Richard Davenport-Hines, "The Spectator"

"Little contends with Franzen's prose. He writes behemoth sentences, graceful, technical mini-wonders that read as easily as his most colloquial quips . . . Franzen never feels more lucid than when assessing--or more often championing--texts that have taken him by the lapels." --Sean Hoen, "Paste"

"Not only is Jonathan Franzen the most important novelist of our time, but . . . he is also an incredibly wise and clear-headed thinker who can humbly analyze and explain some of the most complex situations through the most poignant, insightful, and precise observations." --Randy Rosenthal, "The Coffin Factory"



Praise for "The Kraus Project"

"Kraus' observations about mass media responsibility for the destabilization endemic to modernity, once unpacked from Krauss' highly stylized sentences, sound eminently familiar. For many readers, however, the highlight of this book will be the coming-of-age story Franzen tells in the footnotes about his own journey through the apocalyptic and the megalomaniacal as he struggled with loneliness, writing, and love. Why can't more literary explication engage one's heart and one's head at the same time?" --"Booklist "(starred review)

Praise for "The Kraus Project"

""The Kraus Project," which reprints the German essays alongside Franzen's translations, is a fluid version of Kraus that captures as best it might the author's irascible precision without tinkering his prose to make it sound like any other writer's . . . In the end, it is the achievement of "The Kraus Project" to provide a solid picture of what make Kraus incomparable and, paradoxically enough, relevant. Franzen builds a very effective case that Kraus's criticism of media technology--particularly of the ways that it deformed language and thought--pull him out of the Vienna of a hundred years ago and reveal him to be a timely visionary . . . Franzen's footnotes form a running dialogue with Kraus, and he is full of provocative observations about the encroachments of Twitter streams and AOL news feeds, iPhones and Facebook, and the fawning embrace of technology among the very people whose livelihood is most jeapordized by it, journalists." --Eric Banks, "Bookform"

"Engrossing, highly original . . . As a declared enemy of the easy response in an instant-access culture, Franzen finds in the unduly neglected Kraus a model of how to provoke readers while at the same time getting them to do some work." --Edmund Fawcett, "The New York Times Book Review"

"["The Kraus Project"'s] eccentric, Weblike structure--there are footnotes to footnotes of footnotes--provides a model for intellectually serious blogging . . . What is great about the Kraus essays in "The Kraus Project" [is] the anger that builds to such heights that it becomes funny and laughs at itself, even as it speaks truth to power; the disparagement of something rarely disparaged, individuality . . . Franzen made Kraus's contrarian outlook his own--and reading "The Kraus Project" one finds Franzen's fictional project newly illuminated. In his novels, Franzen often invites the reader to laugh at the darkness hidden in supposedly happy events, and to glimpse the hope hidden i

Descripción Picador USA, 2014. Paperback. Condición: New. Bilingual. Language: German . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. A GREAT AMERICAN WRITER S CONFRONTATION WITH A GREAT EUROPEAN CRITIC-A PERSONAL AND INTELLECTUAL AWAKENING A hundred years ago, the Viennese satirist Karl Kraus was among the most penetrating and prophetic writers in Europe: a relentless critic of the popular media s manipulation of reality, the dehumanizing machinery of technology and consumerism, and the jingoistic rhetoric of a fading empire. But even though his followers included Franz Kafka and Walter Benjamin, he remained something of a lonely prophet, and few people today are familiar with his work. Thankfully, Jonathan Franzen is one of them. In The Kraus Project, Franzen not only presents his definitive new translations of Kraus but also annotates them spectacularly, with supplementary notes from the Kraus scholar Paul Reitter and the Austrian writer Daniel Kehlmann. Kraus was a notoriously cantankerous and difficult author, and in Franzen he has found his match: a novelist unafraid to voice unpopular opinions strongly, a critic capable of untangling Kraus s often dense arguments to reveal their relevance to contemporary America. Interwoven with Franzen s survey of today s cultural and technological landscape is an intensely personal recollection of the author s first year out of college, when he fell in love with Kraus. Painstakingly wrought, strikingly original in form, The Kraus Project is a feast of thought, passion, and literature. Nº de ref. del artículo: BTE9781250056030
