Stars for HERE I AM

The buzz continues to build for Jonathan Safran Foer’s first new novel in more than a decade—HERE I AM has THREE starred reviews!

“In his first novel in 11 years—a far longer, edgier, and more caustically funny tale than EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED and EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE—he choreographs the disintegration of the once blissfully close marriage of architect Julia and TV writer Jacob, exploring how their changing relationship affects their three sons… Foer’s voluminous, polyphonic, and boldly comedic tale of one family’s quandaries astutely and forthrightly confronts humankind’s capacity for the ludicrous and the profound, cruelty and love.” — Booklist, starred & splash page review

“Intensely imagined and richly rewarding… Foer fuses these complex strands with his never-wavering hand. That he can provide such a redemptive denouement, at once poignant, inspirational, and compassionate, is the mark of a thrillingly gifted writer.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The Blochs’ marriage is on a collision course, powerfully framed by reference to the biblical story of Abraham and Isaac, which makes this richly conceived work more than another tale of marital woe. Rigorous questions within an accessible story; highly recommended.” — Library Journal, starred review
