Synopsis

The critically acclaimed first novel from Jonathan Franzen, author of the prize winning and internationally bestselling, `The Corrections'.

By the author of the bestseller `The Corrections' and the sensational `Freedom', `The Twenty-Seventh City' is a novel of intrigue, humour and fear. St. Louis, Missouri, is a quietly dying river city until it hires a new police chief: a charismatic young woman from Bombay, India, named S. Jammu. No sooner has Jammu been installed, though, than the city's leading citizens become embroiled in an all-pervasive political conspiracy. A classic of contemporary fiction, `The Twenty-Seventh City' shows us an ordinary metropolis turned inside out, and the American Dream unravelling into terror and dark comedy.
