Everything is Illuminated - Jonathan Safran Foer

October 2005

Suggested By: Dawn

Summary: An American Jew arrives in the Ukraine to track down the woman who saved his grandfather from the Nazis. Safran Foer twists language and narrative and ends up with a kind of cross between The Curious Incident and The Reader. Genuinely clever or a dog's breakfast? There were strong arguments on both sides.
