Our Lynn gives 4 stars to Purity by Jonathan Franzen: “Jonathan Franzen’s novel Purity deals with big themes – what would a Pure person look like? Through the perspectives of several characters, we meet purity and evil in surprising guises and contexts, from Bolivia and East Germany to California and Denver. Many-layered, the plot is exciting. Although I read it straight through, this is a novel I will read again, like several of Dickens’s works.”
