Our summer reading series features writer Jonathan Franzen. He's been reading two works of American history: Gordon Wood's The Radicalism of the American Revolution (Random House; ISBN: 0679736883) and Reagan's America (Penguin Books; ISBN: 0140296077) by Garry Wills. He's also going to attempt to read Herman Melville's Moby Dick for the fourth time.
