Jonathan Safran Foer
Jonathan Safran Foer burst into the literary world in 2002 with his novel EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED. The novel is narrated by an American Jew named Jonathan who has traveled to the Ukraine to find the woman who saved his grandfather's life during World War II, with a linguistically challenged Ukrainian who acts as his guide. The novel was praised by such literary luminaries as John Updike, Joyce Carol Oates (with whom Foer had studied at Princeton), Salman Rushdie, and the notoriously prickly critic Dale Peck. The film was made into a film starring Elijah Wood. Foer's second novel, EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE, one of the first novels to deal extensively with the fallout of September 11, follows a precocious boy as he wanders New York City after his father dies in the terrorist attacks. The critics were not as kind with this effort, accusing Foer of postmodern trickery and inordinate preciousness, but both books have sold extremely well for works of literary fiction, and Foer is still considered one of the most exciting and daring young writers in America. He collaborated with Dave Eggers on THE FUTURE DICTIONARY OF AMERICA. Foer lives in Brooklyn and is married to the novelist Nicole Krauss.
