'Corrections' author Jonathan Franzen's latest book needs them

UPI News Service, 10/03/2010 

A British publisher says it is apologizing to author Jonathan Franzen for publishing an incorrect edition of his latest book, filled with errors.

Franzen is the author of the bestselling novel, "The Corrections," but it was his latest book, "Freedom," that evoked the apology, The Sunday Telegraph reported.

"Freedom" was published with around 50 punctuation and spelling mistakes; a typesetter sent the wrong edition from the computer, the Telegraph said.

The chief executive of publisher HarperCollins U.K., Victoria Barnsley, said, ''I'd like to apologize profusely to Jonathan, his readers and our customers that our first edition of 'Freedom' does not reflect the author's final corrected version of the novel. It is a truly magnificent novel and we want everyone to have a chance to appreciate it in the final, fully corrected version."

She added, ''We are doing everything in our power to reprint the book over the weekend and rush it out into the shops early next week. I would urge readers to wait until then to buy the book, and we are, of course, very happy to replace any first edition copies that have been bought, with an updated edition as soon as it is available.''

Franzen's critically acclaimed 2001 novel, "The Corrections," sold nearly 3 million copies and was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, the report said.
