Jonathan Safran Foer

Here I Am

€ 29.95

`A monumental new novel from the bestselling author of Everything Is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close In the book of Genesis, when God calls out, `Abraham!` to order him to sacrifice his son Isaac, Abraham responds, `Here I am.` Later, when Isaac calls out, `My father!` to ask him why there is no animal to slaughter, Abraham responds, `Here I am.` How do we fulfill our conflicting duties as father, husband, and son; wife and mother; child and adult? Jew and American? How can we claim our own identities when our lives are linked so closely to others`? These are the questions at the heart of Jonathan Safran Foer`s first novel in eleven years--a work of extraordinary scope and heartbreaking intimacy. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks, in present-day Washington, D.C., Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the very meaning of home--and the fundamental question of how much life one can bear. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence,and emotional urgency that readers and critics loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foer`s most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet. It not only confirms Foer`s stature as a dazzling literary talent but reveals a mature novelist who has fully come into his own as one of the most important writers of his generation. `-
