Everything is Illuminated

Jonathan Safran Foer

Everything Is Illuminated is Jonathan Safran Foer’s bestselling novel of a search for truth. It is the inspiration for the Liev Schreiber film, starring Elijah Wood.

A young man arrives in the Ukraine, clutching in his hand a tattered photograph. He is searching for the woman who fifty years ago saved his grandfather from the Nazis. Unfortunately, he is aided in his quest by Alex, a translator with an uncanny ability to mangle English into bizarre new forms; a blind old man haunted by memories of the war; and an undersexed guide dog named Sammy Davis Jr, Jr. What they are looking for seems elusive - a truth hidden behind veils of time, language and the horrors of war. What they find turns all their worlds upside down…

An astonishing feat of writing: hilariously funny and deeply serious, a gripping narrative. Extraordinary  (The Times )

Jonathan Safran Foer was born in 1977. He is the author of Everything is Illuminated , which won the National Jewish Book Award and the Guardian First Book award; Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close , which is now a major film starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock; and Eating Animals. He is also the editor of A Convergence of Birds.
