CROSSROADS

BY JONATHAN FRANZEN | READ BY DAVID PITTU

Jonathan Franzen’s magnum opus, the larger-than-life story of a Midwestern family across three generations that mirrors the preoccupations and dilemmas of America from the Vietnam war to the 2020s. 

Franzen’s intensely absorbing novel is amusing, excruciating, and at times unexpectedly uplifting—in a word, exquisite.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Franzen returns with a sweeping and masterly examination of the shifting culture of early 1970s America, the first in a trilogy . . . Throughout, Franzen exhibits his remarkable ability to build suspense through fraught interpersonal dynamics. It’s irresistible.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
