"The Discomfort Zone" is Franzen's memoir of growth from his boyhood as a "small and fundamentally ridiculous person," through an adolescence both excruciating and strangely happy, into an adult with embarrassing and unexpected passions. It's also a portrait of a Midwestern middle-class family weathering the turbulence of the 1970s and a vivid personal history of an America turning its back on a certain idealism.

Daring, honest, and written with the comic scrutiny and unqualified affection that marks Franzen's fiction, "The Discomfort Zone" tells of the formation of one young mind in the crucible of an everyday American family.
