I was fully prepared to dislike this book--I am pretty sure I dislike its author, who should really never give another interview as long as he lives. But it's really good, one of the best books I've read this year. I loved the story and the characters, and Franzen has a lot to say here about marriage and idealism and, you know, freedom. Better than The Corrections by a mile.

Karen Michele Hi Gayla,
I'm just about to start this one for the src- I'm glad you liked it so much. Can you tell me if any of the main characters are in their fifties?

Gayla Bassham Patty is 52 at the end of the book and I think Walter is a little older.
