Here I Am - Jonathan Safran Foer

Staff Pick

Set right here in Northwest D.C., Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel Here I Am (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $28) is the story of a family in crisis.  When Julia discovers a series of explicit text messages on her husband Jacob Bloch’s phone, it spells doom for their relationship and major changes for the couple’s three sons.  Meanwhile, an earthquake in Israel leads to chaos in the Middle East that stretches all the way to the Bloch household.  With wisdom and humor, Foer has produced another immensely entertaining novel.  Here I Am captures the contradictions and enigmas of contemporary life and the immensity of love, even in a disintegrating family.
