Brooklyn By the Book presents Jonathan Safran Foer
In conversation with Jodi Kantor
Here I Am, Jonathan Safran Foer's monumental new novel, is the story of a family coming apart in modern-day Washington, DC. Jacob, Julia and their three sons must confront the distance between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living as a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence, and emotional urgency that readers and critics loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foers most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet.
