Аннотация
In The End of the End of the Earth, which gathers essays and speeches written mostly in the past five years, Jonathan Franzen returns with renewed vigour to the themes – both human and literary – that have long preoccupied him. Whether exploring his complex relationship with his uncle, recounting his young adulthood in New York, or offering an illuminating look at the global seabird crisis, these pieces contain all the wit and disabused realism that we’ve come to expect from Franzen.Taken together, these essays trace the progress of a unique and mature mind wrestling with itself, with literature and with some of the most important issues of our day, made more pressing by the current political milieu. The End of the End of the Earth is remarkable, provocative and necessary.

Джек Фоули очень привлекателен: зрелый мужчина, хорош собой, неглуп, обходителен, как ни странно, порядочный человек. Оказывается, вовсе не обязательно быть полным мерзавцем, если живёшь не по правилам общества. А Карен Сиско молода и очень красива. Она объект постоянного внимания мужчин, знает себе цену, мечтает о федеральной карьере и службе в ФБР. Чувства ей не чужды, но из-за них она не пойдёт на нарушение закона, а свои маленькие грехи давно научилась себе прощать. Она охотно соглашается на краткую любовную связь со сбежавшим из тюрьмы преступником, но оба понимают, что у их отношений нет будущего. И не надо строить иллюзий. Джек свободолюбив и предпочёл бы погибнуть в перестрелке, а не во дворе тюрьмы при попытке побега. Но и тут ему не повезло: Текст сокращён и адаптирован. Уровень Intermediate.

Ce n'etait pas un projet conscient et reflechi: c'etait bien pire. Ils ne savaient pas du tout ou ils allaient, mais y allaient en sifflotant – apres eux, le deluge (ou plutot les pluies acides). Pour la premiere fois dans l'histoire de la planete Terre, les humains de tous les pays avaient le meme but: gagner suffisamment d'argent pour pouvoir ressembler a une publicite.
