Corrections, The

Even though I really shouldn't be buying any more books until I've finished some in my queue, I came across the Swedish translation of The Corrections (hardcover even!) for just 4.90 € and just bought it on impulse. It's a bit sad to see such a new novel priced down so early since that's that much less money that goes to the author in the end, but that's another topic.

I first read it in English some time after it had come out and was immediately gripped by the story and the characters. It really shows how fudged up a 21st century family can be (even though it's all fiction).

I've never heard of the Corrections. If you want some messed up 21st century families, try Spanish authors and playwrites.
