I'd heard that the title essay of Jonathan Franzen's new collection was about his punishing experiences on a rough and tiny island. Some of what happened there is by now well known.

Many of Franzen's other literary enthusiasms - generally of an "experimental" nature, unlike Franzen's own fairly mainstream fiction - also failed to convince me, but he opened my mind to them at least, and on his recommendation I did read and enjoy THE LAUGHING POLICEMAN, a Swedish murder mystery of the '70's. I'm no bird watcher, but through Franzen's eyes I could understand the passions of a few of my friends for this pastime.
