Freedom by Jonathan Franzen

One of the most anticipated books of the fall is Freedom, the new book by Jonathan Franzen. It's his first in the nine years since winning the National Book Award for The Corrections.

I'm not just saying this because HarperCollins is publishing the book in Canada! According to this article in PW entitled 'It's Time for Franzen', Franzen will be featured on the cover of the August 23rd issue of Time magazine- the first living author to be so featured in a decade.
PW gave it a starred review, reassuring fans of The Corrections who wondered if Freedom would be able to 'find its own voice in its predecessor’s shadow. In short: yes, it does, and in a big way.'

The book doesn't release until August 31st, but 4 lucky Dewey Diva blog readers can win a copy of the ARC ahead of time and take their names off of the holds list!

Please send an e-mail with the subject line Freedom by Jonathan Franzen to, along with the full mailing address of your library. I'll collect names until the end of day Monday August 16th and draw four winners Tuesday morning. Open to Canadian libraries only, sorry!

Good luck!
