Nothing. Check out Freedom if you feel you must.

Oh that's a good call. Read this and nothing else.

I don't know about Franzen. I'd say he's mediocre, but I read Freedom twice and enjoyed what I read of The Corrections. But he's still unremarkable to me. I like his dialogue when he's doing two people arguing. Sounds realistic to me and I would begin to whisper the parts out loud. But I don't know, they're pretty good reads that I don't think about very often or recommend to people.

The fly, videodrome, dead ringers and scanners

Hes only written like 5 books. It'd take a month to read all his work just do it

After you read that again, does it sound as fucking stupid as it does to me?
>>
>>7681768
Didn't he write the corrections as a belated response to The Recognitions which took him forever to read and he still didn't get?

That just seems like the plebbest thing ever to me.

Greatest writer of 21st century easily.

Read Corrections, Freedom and Purity if you like those two. The other stuff isn't as good.
