Jonathan Franzen on Working and Freedom

in Work / No Comments

“There were a couple of years when I could enjoy blowing off a workday and going bird watching, followed by some years of in which I came to realize that because my purpose on earth seems to be to write novels, I’m actually freer when I’m chained to a project: freer from guilt, anxiety, boredom, anger and purposelessness.”

—Franzen, in an interview with Time, 2010.
