About the Book

Winner of the 2002 National Book Award, The Corrections is the story of the suburban Midwestern couple Alfred and Enid Lambert and their three children, Gary, a bank executive, Chip, a college professor, and Denise, a professional chef.

"Tragedy rewritten as farce," globalization and changing social norms in the post-Cold War era intersect with compelling family drama and a portrait of a debilitating mental illness, all coming to a head in a Christmas at the Lamberts' home in St. Jude, Missouri. Franzen drew heavily on his father's experience with Alzheimer's in his depiction of Alfred Lambert, who has Parkinson's disease.
