Description - The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen

'Intelligent, compellingly readable, funny and above all generous spirited, it is a rare thing, a modern novel with both head and heart' Daily Mail

'Funny and deeply sad, large-hearted and merciless, The Corrections is a testament to the range and depth of pleasures great fiction affords' David Foster Wallace



The Lamberts - Enid and Alfred and their three grown up children - are a troubled family living in a troubled age. Alfred is slowly losing his mind to Parkinson's disease. As his condition worsens, and the Lamberts are forced to face the secrets and failures that haunt them, Enid sets her heart on gathering everyone together for one last family Christmas.
