Jonathan Franzen, master of his own author photo propaganda, has a new binding of pages with words written on them coming out in... ten months. It is called Purity. Have you ever been more excited to read a work of lidərəCHər in your entire life?

The Times, Franzen's mouthpiece of choice, adds logs to the vintage pot-bellied hype stove:

Jonathan Galassi, president and publisher of Farrar, Straus & Giroux, described "Purity" as a multigenerational American epic that spans decades and continents. The story centers on a young woman named Purity Tyler, or Pip, who doesn't know who her father is and sets out to uncover his identity. The narrative stretches from contemporary America to South America to East Germany before the collapse of the Berlin Wall, and hinges on the mystery of Pip's family history and her relationship with a charismatic hacker and whistleblower.

It is so great when Jonathan Franzen, a man, writes stories about young women. I know I really identify with Jonathan Franzen, man and birdwatcher, and where he is coming from. It is interesting how Jonathan Franzen, who is better than women and therefore able to write about them better than they can themselves, named the young female protagonist of his novel "Purity aka Pip." I wonder what that symbolizes? Do you think in the book she might wear white at times? Do you think there will be a scene about the loss of her virginity? That'll be a good one! Wow and can you believe the Berlin Wall collapses in the story and then she meets Edward Snowden? Does Jonathan Franzen read the Intercept? But I thought he hated the internet? Jonathan! U r so mysterious! What r u even doing!

Well, we have ten months to anticipate this book so maybe we'll all be dead by the time it comes out.
