New Franzen in 2015

November 18, 2014 | 2 books mentioned 1

Sound the Franzen alarm! The Corrections and Freedom author will release a new book in 2015. Called Purity, the book will supposedly feature elements of magical realism (or something like it). Head over to Vulture for more.

is a staff writer for The Millions and an MFA candidate at Johns Hopkins. Prior to coming to Baltimore, he studied literature and worked in IT while living in Dublin, Ireland. You can find him on Twitter at @tdbeckwith.

  1. Hooray! 10 months of ridiculous JFranz hype!

    The “magical realism” bit is just hilarious. A hit of intellectual crack for the boring-ass upper crust white folks he writes his entertainments for.

    And the title – I think he’s eventually just going to start arrogantly titling every book “Life”.

    The only silver lining? Perhaps this will present an opportunity for critics to revisit Freedom, realize how utterly terrible and dated that entertainment is, and retract the insane praise previously lavished upon it.
