Farther Away. In every essay, speech or book review in this collection, Franzen’s writing skill shines as he chooses the right word or phrase to bring his prose to life. His passion about the world, birds, and his late friend David Foster Wallace, brings out the best of his writing. His strongly formed opinions can be amusing because of that passion that flows from his sentences. Readers who appreciate fine writing are those most likely to enjoy this collection.
