Publisher's Summary

From Jonathan Franzen, one of our preeminent writers and thinkers, comes a brilliant, searing essay collection that calls for us to take better care of our planet and one another in these troubled times.

The End of the End of the Earth is a collection of Jonathan Franzen's essays and speeches from the past five years, in which he grapples with the most important and heated ethical subjects of the day: environmentalism, capitalism, wealth inequality, race, technology, and the role of art. He challenges us to ask difficult questions: What is our civic responsibility in the face of climate change, the greatest ever threat to our planet and species? Does technology give us a sense of control or community or is it stripping these from us? Above all, in these essays, Franzen asks us to care - about causes great and small, with subjects as big as our planet and specific as a rare species of birds. These essays are in praise of empathy, and of the beauty and power of nature and art. 

This modestly-sized but powerful audiobook is Franzen at his best, incisive, persuasive and compassionate.
