Omschrijving

Everything Is Illuminated is Jonathan Safran Foer's bestselling novel of a search for truth,published as a Penguin Essential for the first time. 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
