Winner of the 2001 National Book Award for FictionAfter almost fifty years as a wife and mother, Enid Lambert is ready to have some fun. Unfortunately, her husband, Alfred, is losing his sanity to Parkinson's disease, and their children have long since flown the family nest to the catastrophes of their own lives. The oldest, Gary, a once-stable portfolio manager and family man, is trying to convince his wife and himself, despite clear signs to the contrary, that he is not clinically depressed. The middle child, Chip, has lost his seemingly secure academic job and is failing spectacularly at his new line of work. And Denise, the youngest, has escaped a disastrous marriage only to pour her youth and beauty down the drain of an affair with a married man-or so her mother fears. Desperate for some pleasure to look forward to, Enid has set her heart on an elusive goal: bringing her family together for one last Christmas at home.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Jonathan FranzenPublisher: Picador USAPublished: 09/01/2002ISBN: 9780312421274Pages: 576Weight: 0.95lbsSize: 8.20h x 5.40w x 1.10dAward: International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award - NomineeReview Citations: BookPage 09/01/2002 pg. 28New York Times 09/01/2002 pg. 16Entertainment Weekly 09/13/2002 pg. 147Entertainment Weekly 06/27/2008 pg. 107Newsweek 12/22/2008 pg. 54Entertainment Weekly 12/11/2009 pg. 83Village Voice 12/23/2009 pg. 28Entertainment Weekly 07/05/2013 pg. 99New Yorker (The) 09/15/2014 pg. 88Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 63181 / CorrectionsReading Level: 7.1 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 34
