Go, Read: Franzen on Peanuts

imageJonathan Franzen's essay on Peanuts and his own household's turmoil in the 1960s fails to come together into a piece more significant than the sum of its paragraphs, but some of those paragraphs are well worth a read. I particularly like his description of reading newspaper comics back when towns typically had two papers (was Peanuts always in a paper with otherwise crummy strips, or is that just my imagination?), and his attraction to the character Snoopy over Charlie Brown.
