>On reading Jonathan Franzen’s ‘Freedom’, p121-127

(From a very early point in the novel, the author makes the “good guy” very complicit in the innocuous “bad thing” that leads to the small cacophony propelling our love of the characters. We are ultimately redeemed ONLY should these small transgressions occur, but in retrospect, in retelling, in novelization, are allowed to spy, but must pass by, dark alleys into which we could make our escape; as in a dream we pilot the vehicle of reason yet soar only with passion’s blessing.)
