De este meticuloso retrato de los Lambert emergen de forma brillante y profundamente humana las angustias y contradicciones de toda una sociedad la norteamericana y de una época la última década del siglo XX Alfred Lambert es un ingeniero de ferrocarril jubilado cuya percepción de la realidad empieza a resuebrajarse a causa de la enfermedad de Parkinson Su esposa Enid tras cincuenta años de matrimonio sigue obsesionada con mantener el orden en su enorme casa de un próspero barrio residencial Los tres hijos se establecieron en la costa Este años atrás lejos del hogar familiar El mayor Gary es un alto ejecutivo bancario un modélico padr While reading The Corrections I really understood the meaning of ‘schadenfreude’ because I despised almost every character in this book so much that the miserable their lives got the enjoyment I took from it And when a shotgun was introduced late in the novel I read the rest of it with my fingers crossed while muttering Please please please please please please in the hope that at least one of those pitiful shits would end up taking a load of buckshot to the faceThe Lambert’s are a Midwestern family and while the grown children have all moved to Philadelphia and New York the parents have remained in St Jude The father Alfred was a workaholic middle manager for a railroad and he's the kind of joyless repressed bastard that considered all pleasures frivolous and taking a coffee break as a massive character flaw Now retired he’s suffering from Parkinson's and dementia He deserves itEnid is the mother Seriously Franzen Enid I’ve lived in the Midwest all my life and have never met an Enid I know you were making a point on how suare the old school Midwesterners are but that‘s pushing it She’s a delusional nagging harpy from hell who aims her passive aggressive attacks at whichever family member has recently burst the bubble of whatever fantasy she is currently clinging to Through most of the book Enid has her heart set on one last family Christmas at the house in St Jude and the evil bitch will stop at nothing to get itGary is the oldest and a successful investment adviser in Philly but he married a woman who wants all ties severed with his family and has a special way of getting his sons to join her in her efforts Torn between trying to placate his wife and his mother while letting their denials of reality make him crazy and trying to be 'the responsible one' Gary is running himself ragged to avoid admitting that he’s depressed Someone should pimp slap him so hard that his fillings fly out of his teethChip the middle son is a waste of skin with a special talent for self destruction He torched his academic career as a professor just as he was about to get tenure by having an affair with a student and then becoming obsessed with her He’s now a mooch in New York working on a screenplay so horrible that it'd make a Michael Bay movie look good by comparison He’s also the kind of douche bag who thinks that getting rivets put in his ears and wearing leather pants is cool even though he’s over thirtyDenise is the one character that I actually had some sympathy for A daddy’s girl who adopted Alfred’s work ethic she’s a successful chef of an upscale restaurant but she’s also got a messy personal life including trying to figure out her sexuality At least she’s the one member of this dysfunctional hellspawned family that knows she has issues and tries not to deceive herself any than most people doThe weird thing is that even though I loathed the Lamberts and almost every supporting character too that I actually enjoyed this book I usually can’t stand stories where all the characters’ problems are self inflicted emotional wounds due to a basic refusal to admit and face reality However I have to admit that I found this compelling reading Maybe I was into it for all the wrong reasons Namely that I hated the Lamberts so much that their continued suffering brought sweet tears of joy to my eyes That’s probably not what Franzen intended but he had to create some incredibly vivid characters and do justice to their pathetic lives to make me hate them so very very much Waiting in the

E de familia acosado por el fantasma de la depresión Chip el segundo tras su fracaso en el mundo académico se ha enfrascado en un nuevo proyecto de dudosa legalidad Y Denise la menor extremadamente competitiva triunfa como chef de un restaurante de moda pero sufre los reveses de una vida sentimental inestable En el país la realidad económica corrige las expectativas sobrevaloradas del mercado bursátil mientras los medicamentos más avanzados corrigen los trastornos del ánimo Pero en el ámbito de la familia ¿pueden los hijos corregir los errores de sus padres Y en un orden de cosas más concreto ¿logrará Enid reunir a todos sus hijos “And when the event the big change in your life is simply an insight—isn't that a strange thing That absolutely nothing changes except that you see things differently and you're less fearful and less anxious and generally stronger as a result isn't it amazing that a completely invisible thing in your head can feel realer than anything you've experienced before You see things clearly and you know that you're seeing them clearly And it comes to you that this is what it means to love life this is all anybody who talks seriously about God is ever talking about Moments like this” The Lamberts are experiencing corrections Not economic ones like the rest of the country although money does underline everything they worry about The whole family in a myriad of ways is each on the verge of their very own uniue self destruction “THE CORRECTION when it finally came was not an overnight bursting of a bubble but a much gentle let down a year long leakage of value from key financial markets a contraction too gradual to generate headlines and too predictable to seriously hurt anybody but fools and the working poor” There may be big events that finally shove us forward backwards or sideways but in the aftermath most of us can find with some self evaluation that the crash in our lives was preceded by a series of miniature inadvisable decisions Sometimes we have to crash to correctAlfred is the father a Kansan who believed in hard work and honest labor He has always been moody self contained in many ways unknowable At the age of 75 he has come down with Parkinson’s and is uickly becoming a burden impossible to bear for his wife Enid and his kids He has trouble controlling his bowels and this manifests itself in an almost comic if it weren’t so tragic series of delusions of talking turds pursuing him relentlessly through the corridors of his own mind He was an amateur chemist and made an important discovery that for unknowable reasons it will be revealed later in the book refuses to fight for his rights to be richly rewarded It drives his oldest son Gary nuts ”Gary didn’t know which version of Alfred made him angrier the spiteful old tyrant who’d made a brilliant discovery in the basement and cheated himself out of a fortune or the clueless basement amateur who’d unwittingly replicated the work of real chemists spent scarce family money to file and maintain a vaguely worded patent and was now being tossed a scrap from the table Both versions incensed himI admit there are several moments when I too felt the urge to strangle Alfred He is from a generation and geography where a man makes decisions and never feels the need to explain himself He doesn’t care how angry or upset you are Tears nor threats will move him to give you the reasons that led him to his decisions Gary is an investment banker in Philadelphia He has a beautiful wife named Caroline and three sons He is fighting with his wife regularly than normal and she insists that he is clinically depressed He believes and is not just paranoid about this issue that his wife is manipulating events behind his back subtly turning his sons against him She denies everything concedes nothing He finds her in pain from her back and realizes as angry as he is ”That her face was beautiful and that the agony in it was mistakable for ecstasy that the sight of her doubled over and mud spattered and red cheeked and vanuished and wild haired on the Persian rug turned him on; that some part of him believed her denials and was full of tenderness for her only deepened his feeling of betrayal”He has a haughty disdain for nearly everyone He talks down to his mother He is furious and almost unhinged with his father He is dismissive of his siblings His lust for his wife is inspired as much by his desire to try and control her as it is about physical contact Her fights with him heightens all kinds of feelings of desire He is almost snobbishly gleeful in his fidelity to her but as he revels in his superiority there are also other issues knocking around in his head ”It occurred to Gary as the young estate planner leaned into him to let a raft of sweltering humanity leave the elevator as she pressed her hennaed head against his ribs intimately than seemed strictly necessary that another reason he’d remained faithful to Caroline through twenty years of marriage was his steadily growing aversion to physical contact with other human beings Certainly he was in love with fidelity; certainly he got an erotic kick out of adhering to principle; but somewhere between his brain and his balls a wire was also perhaps coming loose because when he mentally undressed and violated this little redhaired girl his main thought was how stuffy and undisinfected he would find the site of his infidelity a coliform bacterial supply closet a Courtyard Marriott with dried semen on the walls and bedspreads each site over warm and underventilated and suggestive of genital warts and chlamydia in its own unpleasant way and what a struggle it would be to breath how smothering her flesh how sualid and foredoomed his efforts not to condescend”So really he is faithful because it is unhygienic to cheat Chip is the middle child a teacher at a college when we first meet him He involves himself with a student who pursued him relentless not so much out of sexual attractiveness but that she needed his help on a paper for another class Classic barter system; that unfortunately for Chip is discovered After he is fired he writes a breast obsessed first draft of a screenplay called The Academy Purple It is really horrible He loses yet another girlfriend Julia who's boss decides that she needs to upgrade boyfriends Julia has a husband from Lithuanian who needs someone with Chip’s skills With zero prospects in NY Chip decides to fly to Lithuania to help defraud American investors; greed can always be exploited After cratering over the loss of his young college lover that left him snuffling his furniture for any residual essence of her nether regions Chip is getting over lost girlfriends uicker helped by fantasy detours about a bartender he just met ”If he couldn’t get Julia back he wanted in the worst way to have sex with the bartender Who looked about thirty nine herself He wanted to fill his hands with her smoky hair He imagined that she lived in a rehabbed tenement on East Fifth he imagined that she drank a beer at bedtime and slept in faded sleeveless tops and gym shorts that her posture was weary her navel unassumingly pierced her pussy like a seasoned baseball glove her toenails painted the plainest basic red He wanted to feel her legs across his back he wanted to hear the story of her forty odd years”Things don’t go well for Chip in Lithuania but he was so damn close ”He didn’t understand what had happened to him He felt like a piece of paper that had once had coherent writing on it but had been through the wash He felt roughened bleached and worn out along the fold lines”Denise is the youngest sibling a successful chef who finds herself the main negotiator between her parents and her brothers She has a history of being attracted to older men which probably has something to do with her uneasy relationship with her father After her marriage to a colleague twice her age falls to pieces she is done with men and decides to try her luck with womenWith mixed results She gets an opportunity of a lifetime when she meets a young entrepreneur a member of the recently wealthy who decides he wants to open a restaurant He wants Denise to be his chef and he wants her in his bed She resists barely intent on not letting sex destroy this opportunity for her Kudos for trying to break a bad pattern Good thinkingbut sleeping with his wife nullifies all that careful arms length tango she carried out so well with the husband ”Her car was like a tongue gliding down the melty asphalt streets her feet like twin tongues licking the pavement the front door of the house on Panama Street like a mouth that swallowed her the Persian runner in the hall outside the master bedroom like a tongue beckoning the bed in its cloak of comforter and pillows a big soft tongue begging to be depressed and then”The problem with Denise is she has a hard time resisting people who find her attractive She enjoys the fact that older men really appreciate her shapely body The sexual attraction that males and females have for her compels her forward in a relationship long past the time when any of it is still pleasurable for her She loses everything for something she really didn’t want in the first placeI haven’t even gotten to the mother Enid She is at that point in her life where she is ready to go do things and finds her husband ”moldering and devaluing” before her very eyes He is an albatross around her neck; and yet she still loves him She desperately clings to the idea of the whole Lambert family coming together one time in St Jude for Christmas If you are someone who likes to read books where you like the characters you might struggle with this book I find that a lot of people who say they don’t like this book abandon it before completion It is natural to want someone in a story that you can root for As Jonathan Franzen unpacks these characters he exposes those things that are generally hidden beneath our clothes like a nasty wart near a nipple or cellulite on our butt cheeks The type of flaws we would prefer to be seen in half light not the glaring brightness of daylight I started out not liking any of these characters their flaws were dominating their inherently good ualities but as Franzen so deftly unspools revelations I became and sympathetic What we have to remember is that none of us knows someone’s whole history We get pieces and sometimes those are the best pieces and sometimes we only see someone at their worst moment We never have the whole story that might make sense out of the senseless We have a tendency to ignore our own flaws and castigate those same flaws in others You might be starting to understand where I’m going with all this These characters are human maybe too human but that could be because Jonathan Franzen may have wrote one of the most honest books you’ll ever read If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at
