NEW YORK (AP) - Jonathan Franzen’s next book will be a collection of essays, including two previously unpublished works.

“Farther Away: Essays” will be released in May by Farrar, Straus & Giroux. The publisher said Thursday that two pieces, “On Autobiographical Fiction” and “Comma-Then,” have never been published before.

Franzen is known for the novels “The Corrections” and “Freedom,” both chosen by Oprah Winfrey for her book club. His other works include the memoir “Discomfort Zone” and a book of essays, “How to be Alone.”
