Andreas tries to pursue Pip sexually claiming to be falling in love with her, and even telling her about the murder of Host, Annagret's stepfather, but although they have sexual encounters Pip refuses to have penetrative sex with him. At the end of six months Andreas tells Pip that it is impossible to track down her father and suggest her skills lie with investigative journalism.

He sends her Denver as Tom is the only other person who knows about Hosts's murder and has Pip install spyware in the DI offices and at Tom's home. Pip comes to genuinely enjoy working at the Denver Independent with Tom and Leila and, realizing they don't seem to have any agenda regarding Wolf, regrets having installed spyware on Tom's computer. After Andreas tells her he is no longer interested in her sexually she threatens him and asks him to undo the spyware.

Shortly after Tom fires her having located the spyware and realizing that she is an agent sent by Andreas. He interrogates her as to the identity of her father but as she seems to know nothing he lets her go. Flashing back to their courtship Tom Aberant remembers when he was a college student at the University of Pennsylvania and editor-in-chief of The Daily Pennsylvanian.

Following an unflattering story an art student at Tyler School of Art , about Anabel Laird, Tom, who is still a virgin, falls in love with the difficult and precocious Anabel.


Anabel comes from a wealthy family worth hundreds of millions of dollars but refuses any of the family fortune. Much to Tom's mother's dismay Tom decides to marry Anabel. Their marriage quickly becomes abusive as Anabel descends into anorexia and isolates Tom from members of his family and his own friends and also does her best to punish him for his journalistic success.

When Tom's mother Clelia reveals she is dying Tom travels with her to East Germany where she is briefly reunited with the family she abandoned. Tom's mother eventually dies and East Germany crumbles. The day that Andreas appears on television Tom also happens to meet him and is quickly enchanted by him.

After Tom reveals that he wants to leave Anabel after eleven years together, Andras confesses to Host's murder and persuades Tom to help him remove Host's body and rebury it at a different location.

When they are finished reburying the body Andreas masturbates on the grave leaving Tom unsettled. He then leaves East Germany without meeting Andreas again.

Tom returns to America where he divorces Anabel, continues having sex with her and finally, to end their relationship tells her he is going to accept a huge check from her father. She disappears, leaving no trace except for a taunting note. Though Anabel's brothers believe he has killed her he remains on good terms with her father. She and Wolf's mother Katya become best of friends, and Wolf finds himself having great internal rages, which he dubs the "killer.

He becomes an Internet celebrity and a wanted man in most countries of the world for his leaking of secrets, eventually settling his operations in a hidden paradise within Bolivia. In his growing paranoia, he endlessly searches for information about himself, and when a journalist, Leila Helou, castigates him for "dirty secrets," he connects her with Tom Aberant, who, he is convinced, has betrayed him.

Seeking revenge, he discovers Tom's wife vanished long ago, and starts a deep trawl with face-recognition software on American databases. Eventually, he discovers Penelope Tyler Anabel's new name , and learning of Pip's existence and of Tom being her likely father, asks Annagret to recruit Pip.

When Tom finally learns he has been spied on, he comes to Bolivia to have it out with Wolf, who is surprised to learn that Tom has kept his secret. Wolf leads Tom to a high, isolated cliff, taunts Tom with his private knowledge about Pip and his reading of Tom's secret memoir. When he can't goad Tom into killing him, even by telling him he has mailed the secret memoir to Pip, Wolf leaps off the cliff.

The Rain Comes[ edit ] Pip is trying to come to terms with the knowledge of who she is. She reveals herself to her mother's trust fund manager, whose hands are mostly tied without Anabel's signature at some point. Pip convinces her mother into lending the smallest amounts and arranges for Tom to meet Anabel again.

The reunion goes poorly.

The original five Lamberts are together in the same room only for about six pages, near the end of the book. He becomes an Internet celebrity and a wanted man in most countries of the world for his leaking of secrets, eventually settling his operations in a hidden paradise within Bolivia. So, how does this impulse to set out and explore respond to suburban North-America?

So why did I go back to a conspiracy plot in Purity?


Intertextuality is another dimension of novelistic meaning. Franzen's most fleet-footed, least self-conscious and most intimate novel yet.
