A major writer of our time talks about his bestselling novel Purity

US writer Jonathan Franzen is one of the big drawcards for this year’s Writers’ Festival. His new book Purity has been called a daring and penetrating work, telling a story of youthful idealism, extreme fidelity and murder. He’s the author of four books including The Corrections and Freedom. His talk with Anna Funder will be as wide-ranging as his latest work, which is ambitious, satirical and witty.
