Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
"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"). "One of the most impressive novel debuts of recent years." (Joyce Carol Oates, "The Times Literary Supplement"). "A first novel of startling originality". (Jay McInerney, "Observer"). "Showy, smart. Made me laugh a lot". (Susan Sontag, "The Times Literary Supplement"). "It seems hard to believe that such a young writer can have such a deep understanding of both comedy and tragedy". (Erica Wagner, "The Times"). "A box of treasures". ("LA Times"). "Funny, life affirming, brilliant". ("Esquire"). 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".

Book Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Penguin UK | Winner of the Corine - Internationaler Buchpreis, Kategorie Rolf Heyne Buchpreis 2003 and the Guardian First Book Award 2002. A Novel | Ein ganz und gar außergewöhnlicher Roman - der Sensationserfolg in den USA Man lacht und weint und ist hingerissen vom Talent eines jungen Autors. Er erzählt die phantastische Geschichte eines jüdischen Schtetls, das Schicksal seiner Familie während des Holocaust und die Abenteuer eines jungen Amerikaners, der aufgebrochen ist, um die Vergangenheit zu suchen. | Ein junger Amerikaner kommt in die Ukraine. Er heißt zufällig Jonathan Safran Foer. Im Gepäck hat er das vergilbte Foto einer Frau namens Augustine. Sie soll gegen Ende des 2. Weltkrieges seinen Großvater vor den Nazis gerettet haben. Jonathan will Augustine finden und Trachimbrod, den Ort, aus dem seine Familie stammt. Sein Reiseführer ist ein alter Ukrainer mit einem noch älteren klapprigen Auto, sein Dolmetscher dessen Enkel Alex, ein unglaubliches Großmaul und ein Genie im Verballhornen von Sprache. Mit von der Partie ist noch Sammy Davis jr. jr., eine neurotische Promenadenmischung mit einer Leidenschaft für Jonathan, der Angst vor Hunden hat. Die Reise führt durch eine verwüstete Gegend und in eine Zeit des Grauens. Alex berichtet in seiner unnachahmlichen Sprache von den Abenteuern und irrsinnigen Missverständnissen während dieser Fahrt, Jonathan erzählt die phantastische Geschichte Trachimbrods bis zum furchtbaren Ende, und der alte Ukrainer begegnet den Gespenstern seiner Vergangenheit. Alex und Jonathan aber sind zum Schluss der Reise Freunde geworden. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 208 gr | 276 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780141008257
