'Crossroads' af

Set in a historical moment of moral crisis, Crossroads is the stunning foundation of a sweeping investigation of human mythologies, as the Hildebrandt family navigate the political and social crosscurrents of the past fifty years ... A Daily Mail Most Anticipated Book of 2021, a Guardian Most Anticipated Book of 2021, a Times Most Ancipated Book of 2021, a Glasgow Herald Most Anticipated Book of 2021! - It's December 23, 1971, and heavy weather is forecast for Chicago. Russ Hildebrandt, the associate pastor of a liberal suburban church, is on the brink of breaking free of a marriage he finds joyless - unless his wife, Marion, who has her own secret life, beats him to it. Their eldest child, Clem, is coming home from college on fire with moral absolutism, having taken an action that will shatter his father. Clem's sister, Becky, long the social queen of her high-school class, has sharply veered into the counterculture, while their brilliant younger brother Perry, who's been selling drugs to seventh-graders, has resolved to be a better person. Each of the Hildebrandts seeks a freedom that each of the others threatens to complicate. Jonathan Franzen's novels are celebrated for their unforgettably vivid characters and their keen-eyed take on the complexities of contemporary America. Now, for the first time, in Crossroads, Franzen explores the history of a generation. With characteristic humour and complexity, and with even greater warmth, he conjures a world that feels no less immediate. A tour de force of interwoven perspectives and sustained suspense, Crossroads is the story of a Midwestern family at a historical moment of moral crisis. Jonathan Franzen's gift for melding the small picture and the big picture has never been more dazzlingly evident.

Ved enden af verdens ende

Jonathan Franzen

De seneste 25 år har den amerikanske forfatter Jonathan Franzen ved siden af sit succesrige skønlitterære forfatterskab levet et andet liv som risikovillig essayist. I sin nye essaysamling giver han blandt andet et bud på, hvordan vi tackler en uundgåelig klimakrise. For krisen er uafvendelig, ifølge Franzen. Men i stedet for at stirre os blinde og magtesløse på klimaapokalypsens komme skal vi koncentrere os om de mange mindre ting, som det faktisk er muligt at gø...
