Jonathan Franzen Reads from The Corrections
Franzen, Wallace's friend, is talented at writing fiction so vivid it's practically edible, as the food in this passage is. The Corrections is a supposedly riveting book about a family, to cut it very short. I recently found a secondhand hardback with the Opra's Book Club insignia on it (I really would have preferred the National Book Award medal instead.), and I'll be reading it soon.
