Really great book. It made me think a lot about getting to know your parents all over again as an adult - taking care of them, blaming them, trying to understand them. I thought also of DeLillo's White Noise and the absurdity of modern life - dislocation of family, struggling to define success. Being from the Midwest, I identified all too well with Edna's passive-aggressive judgmental holier-than-thou persona - let's just say it hits close to home. Many aspects of this story hit close to home, it was very emotional, very moving. I hope to read more from Franzen.
