Smithfield Critics Book Discussion Group : The Corrections - Jonathan Franzen

Wednesday, January 16, 2013  
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Because of her husband Alfred's Parkinson's disease, elderly midwestern housewife Enid Lambert seeks to gather her grown children for one last Christmas together. But unhappily married banker Gary, recently fired professor Chip, and hard-working chef Denise have other ideas. Franzen's complex portrayal of this dysfunctional and flawed family is an unsentimental look into modern American life.
