really liked it

Read in November, 2008

Rather enjoyable, though a bit disjointed. Not a typical memoir in that it's not really linear and it's very episodic - just flashes of Franzen's life. I thought it was very well-done though. Entertaining and easy to listen to. I especially enjoyed the parts about Mutton and Franzen's experiences with women while studying abroad. A bit odd that I even bothered to listen to this since I've never even read a Franzen book and really know nothing about him, but I think I may read something now.
