Apparently publishing of Jonathan Franzen's newest bestseller, Freedom, has not gone as smoothly abroad as it in the US. HarperCollins UK mistakenly printed an older version of the novel instead of the finalized corrected copy for the novel's UK release last week. The Publisher and CEO of HarperCollins UK Victoria Barnsley issued an apology to Franzen and the public on October 1st in which she thanked them for their patience and urged the public to wait to buy the novel until the correct version can be released this week. Readers who have already purchased the incorrect version of the novel will be able to exchange their books for the updated edition.
