In the library drawer

The library, be it real or virtual, has drawers. We fill them with books, journalistic tools, films and websites.

Today we bookmark Jonathan Franzen’s novel, Purity. It is still not available in Armenian, but it is available in English and Russian.

The American classical writer Franzen wrote Purity in 2015. This novel is about life, love, journalists, migration, modern America and socialist Germany, a dirty past, murder and suicide, as well as the connection between man and information.

In the novel there is the character who is an editor and journalist and who resembles Wikileaks’ Julian Assange. The novel ought to interest journalists, and in general, it is captivating.
