If you pay even the most minimal attention to the book world (and if you are reading this blog, then my guess is you might) you have probably heard that Jonathan Franzen's upcoming book, Freedom, is fantastic. He is the first author to grace the cover of Time magazine in a decade, and his upcoming release has received absolutely glowing reviews(read the NYT review here).
CNN is reporting that Barack Obama was given an advance copy (it is available August 31) while on vacation in Martha's Vineyard. I guess the job has some perks. Hopefully the Commander in Chief will share his thoughts on what Sam Tanenhaus of the New York Times calls "a masterpiece of American fiction."
