A sharp and provocative new essay collection from the award-winning author of Freedom and The Corrections

In The End of the End of the Earth, which gathers essays and speeches written mostly in the past five years, Jonathan Franzen returns with renewed vigour to the themes – both human and literary – that have long preoccupied him. Whether exploring his complex relationship with his uncle, recounting his young adulthood in New York, or offering an illuminating look at the global seabird crisis, these pieces contain all the wit and disabused realism that we've come to expect from Franzen.

Taken together, these essays trace the progress of a unique and mature mind wrestling with itself, with literature and with some of the most important issues of our day, made more pressing by the current political milieu. The End of the End of the Earth is remarkable, provocative and necessary.

 

本書是屢獲殊榮的《自由》與《修正》獲獎作家尖銳且深具啟發的論文集。
 
《地球盡頭的盡頭》主要收集了作者過去五年來的文章和演講,喬納森•弗朗岑以充滿活力的方式回歸他長期關注的人性和文學的主題。無論是探索與叔叔的複雜關係,還是敘述他在紐約的青年時期,或是對全球性海鳥危機提供新的視野,這些作品都具備了我們期待從弗朗岑身上想看到的一切機智和真實。
 
總的來看,這些論文追溯了一個獨特而成熟的心智在自身,文學以及當今重大議題上進行角力的歷程,這些議題在當前的政治環境中更形迫切。《地球盡頭的盡頭》是一本傑出、啟迪思考不可或缺的作品。
