Sinopsis:

A magnum opus for our morally complex times from the author of FREEDOM and THE CORRECTIONS

Young Pip Tyler doesn?t know who she is. She knows that her real name is Purity, that she?s saddled with $130,000 in student debt, that she?s squatting with anarchists in Oakland, and that her relationship with her mother ? her only family ? is hazardous. But she doesn?t have a clue who her father is, why her mother chose to live as a recluse with an invented name, or how she?ll ever have a normal life.

Enter the Germans. A glancing encounter with a German peace activist leads Pip to an internship in South America with the Sunlight Project, an organization that traffics in all the secrets of the world ? including, Pip hopes, the secret of her origins. TSP is the brainchild of Andreas Wolf, a charismatic provocateur who rose to fame in the chaos following the fall of the Berlin Wall. Now on the lam in Bolivia, Andreas is drawn to Pip for reasons she doesn?t understand, and the intensity of her response to him upends her conventional ideas of right and wrong.

Jonathan Franzen?s Purity is a grand story of youthful idealism, extreme fidelity, and murder. The author of The Corrections and Freedom has imagined a world of vividly original characters ? Californians and East Germans, good parents and bad parents, journalists and leakers ? and he follows their intertwining paths through landscapes as contemporary as the omnipresent Internet and as ancient as the war between the sexes. Purity is the most daring and penetrating book yet by one of the major writers of our time.

Críticas:

Praise for FREEDOM:

?Deeper, funnier, sadder and truer than a work of fiction has any right to be? Independent on Sunday

'Head and shoulders above any other book this year: moving, funny and unexpectedly beautiful. I missed it when it was over' Sam Mendes, Observer, Books of the Year

'A cat's cradle of family life ? ?Freedom? is a great book' Kirsty Wark Observer, Books of the Year

'No question about it: ?Freedom? swept everything before it in intricately observed, humane, unprejudiced armfuls. There was no novel to touch it in 2010' Philip Hensher, Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year

'Franzen pulls off the extraordinary feat of making the lives of his characters more real to you than your own' David Hare, Guardian, Books of the Year

'By the end of ?Freedom? you may feel you understand its protagonists better than you know anyone in the world around you' Nicholas Hytner, Evening Standard, Books of the Year

Praise for THE CORRECTIONS:

'Impossible to dislike, an unpretentious page-turner.' Zadie Smith, Guardian Book of the Year

'Jonathan Franzen has built a powerful novel out of the swarming consciousness of a marriage, a family, a whole culture ? our culture. And he has done it with a sympathy and expansiveness that bends the edgy modern temper to a generous breadth of vision.' Don DeLillo

?Funny and deeply sad, large-hearted and merciless, ?The Corrections? is a testament to the range and depth of pleasures great fiction affords.'
David Foster Wallace

?A book which is funny, moving, generous, brutal and intelligent, and which poses the ultimate question: what life is for? And that is as much as anyone could ask.' Guardian

'Compelling. A pleasure from beginning to end. Franzen, in one leap, has put himself into the league of Updike and Roth.' David Sexton, Evening Standard
