Summary

Summary

The Corrections has been hailed as "ferociously detailed, gratifyingly mind-expanding," by Booklist in a starred review. It is a New York Times best-seller, an Oprah's Book Club pick, and was shortlisted for the National Book Critics Circle Award. Crafted by New Yorker writer Jonathan Franzen, this novel draws parallels between the problems in one family and the malfunctions of modern society. Statistically, the Lamberts may be a typical Midwestern family. But in reality, they are far from it. Alfred, the father, is losing his fight to control Parkinson's Disease and dementia. His wife, Enid, no longer in control of her household, feels her choices slipping away. Their three grown children are struggling with their own clashes between dreams and disasters. But for one Christmas, Enid is determined to bring them together for the ideal family holiday. As Franzen traces the Lamberts' lurch toward the crisis of this Christmas, he seasons his novel with satire, humor, and affection. The final chapter, infused with hope, is the perfect conclusion for Enid's quirky quest to correct the course of her life.
