Purity Overview

"Purity" is a contemporary novel of cultural commentary and personal discovery by Jonathan Franzen, in which 24-year-old Pip Tyler not only comes to work for the information leak group Sunlight Project, but endeavors to find out who her father is. "Purity" thus contains important thematic arguments in which Franzen urges readers to consider that not all secrets should be exposed, that leaking is not journalism, that leaking is not necessarily heroic, and so on.
