Jonathan Franzen

The Comedy of Rage

Jonathan Franzen: The Comedy of Rage is the first critical biography of one of todays most important novelists. Drawing on unpublished emails and a private interview (along with published ones), Philip Weinstein conveys the feel and heft of Franzens voice as he ponders the purposes and problems of his life and his art.
Franzens work raises major questions about the possibilities of contemporary fiction: how does one appeal to a broad mass of mainstream readers, on the one hand, while persuading connoisseurs, on the other, that ones fiction has staying power, is high art? Even more acutely, how did Franzen move from the rage that animates his first two novels to the more generous comic stance of the two later novels on which his reputation rests?
Wrestling with these questions, Jonathan Franzen: The Comedy of Rage unpacks the becoming of Franzen as a person and a writer - from his ultra-sensitive Midwestern childhood, through his heady years at Swarthmore College, his marriage, and the alienating decade of the 1990s, up to his spectacular ascent and assimilation into pop-culture as one of the literary figures of his generation. Weinstein joins biography and criticism in ways that fully respect their differences - but that also grant that the work comes, however unpredictably, out of the life.
