Believe the Hype (A Book Review)

The Discomfort Zone - Jonathan Franzen B+
Publication: September 2006

Despite the criticisms, controversies and perceptions that he is a pretentious ass, Jonathan Franzen intrigues me.  As a matter of fact, from what little I know about him so far, he seems a little iconic.  The Discomfort Zone is an entertaining account of some of his personal history- parents, academic years, marriage, and birds.  I was hooked right away, and I look forward to reading more from Franzen.
