Patty and Walter Berglund were the new pioneers of old St. Paul—the gentrifiers, the hands-on parents, the avant-garde of the Whole Foods generation. Patty was the ideal sort of neighbor, who could tell you where to recycle your batteries and how to get the local cops to actually do their job. She was an enviably perfect mother and the wife of Walter's dreams. Together with Walter—environmental lawyer, commuter cyclist, total family man—she was doing her small part to build a better world. But now, in the new millennium, the Berglunds have become a mystery. Why has their teenage son moved in with the aggressively Republican family next door? Why has Walter taken a job working with Big Coal? What exactly is Richard Katz—outré rocker and Walter's college best friend and rival—still doing in the picture? Most of all, what has happened to Patty? Why has the bright star of Barrier Street become "a very different kind of neighbor," an implacable Fury coming unhinged before the street's attentive eyes? In his first novel since The Corrections, Jonathan Franzen has given us an epic of contemporary love and marriage. Freedom comically and tragically captures the temptations and burdens of liberty: the thrills of teenage lust, the shaken compromises of middle age, the wages of suburban sprawl, the heavy weight of empire. In charting the mistakes and joys of Freedom's characters as they struggle to learn how to live in an ever more confusing world, Franzen has produced an indelible and deeply moving portrait of our time.

Born on the Defour plantation in Natchez, Mississippi, before the Civil War, Koweena’s early life is fraught with uncertainty. She doesn’t look like the other slave girls.

The day Koweena meets Julie, the daughter of the plantation owner, her life changes forever.

Koweena’s salvation comes from an unexpected source. Julie herself wants to help her find freedom, and the two begin to plan for Koweena’s trip on the Underground Railroad. It’s a journey fraught with danger, but Koweena knows she has no choice. She must take this step if she is ever to fi nd the happiness she longs for. But then Koweena learns the shattering truth of her parentage—one that will make her question not only her past, but her future as well.

Thousands of miles apart, John Wesley Zooma and Clarence VanDyke Jackson witness horrific events in their young lives—events that ultimately shape the direction of their future. Zooma is a full member of the Zulu tribe in Natal, South Africa, and Jackson is an African American in a small town in south-central Mississippi. Following the traumatic events of their youths, they vow to exact revenge someday. Years later, the two become connected through Jackson’s illegal arms trade business. When Jackson falls in love with a Brazilian woman, he decides it’s time to leave the arms trade behind—but not before brokering one last deal with his partner, a German man named Carl Durnbacher. But Durnbacher doesn’t take well to Jackson’s defection from the partnership, and he orders a hit on Jackson. In the meantime, trouble is brewing in South Africa, where Zooma is privy to the details of the impending uprising. He uses his resources to aid friend Michael Stephens, who had saved his life during a work accident, escape the country with his family instead of being killed. Through a tangled web of relationships, Downfall and Freedom follows the illegal arms trade business as it becomes involved in the South African revolution.
