COMMUNITY REVIEWS

the social novel is alive again submitted by grubbg on June 14, 2015, 2:01pm Jonathan Franzen is one of the only novelists these days writing social novels: novels that center on a social problem. We need this kind of literature, now more than ever. And he's doing it right. A fixating book, full of rich characters and the vexing paradoxes of contemporary life.

Funny submitted by EJZ on July 23, 2018, 8:45pm One of the funniest novels I've read in a long time. An American family confronts the deteriorating health of their aged parents, told from multiple points of view. I loved it, beginning to end.

You'll start to see yourself and your family in the characters, and not necessarily in a good way.
