Renowned for placing “his reader's hand on the heart of human experience” (Philadelphia Inquirer), Jonathan Safran Foer is the bestselling author of the frenetically irreverent, emotionally urgent novels Everything Is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Also the nonfiction author of Eating Animals, a philosophical investigation into the carnivorous human condition, Foer is the recipient of many literary honors, including the Guardian First Book Award and the National Jewish Book Award. In Here I Am, his first novel in 11 years, a Washington, D.C. family is confronted by questions of identity and fulfilment when a devastating earthquake escalates conflict in both the Middle East and their own home.
