Here I Am by Jonathan Safran Foer
The New York Times bestselling new novel about modern family lives - from the author of Everything Is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Jacob and Julia Bloch are about to be tested . . .
By Jacob's grandfather, who won't go quietly into a retirement home.
By the family reunion, that everyone is dreading.
By their son's heroic attempts to get expelled.
And by the sexting affair that will rock their marriage.
A typical modern American family, the Blochs cling together even as they are torn apart. Which is when catastrophe decides to strike . . .
Confronting the enduring question of what it means to be human with inventiveness, playfulness and compassion, Here I Am is a great American family novel for our times, a masterpiece about how we live now.
