"Tree of Codes" is a haunting new story by best-selling American writer, Jonathan Safran Foer. With a different die-cut on every page, "Tree of Codes" explores previously unchartered literary territory. Initially deemed impossible to make, the book is a first -- as much a sculptural object as it is a work of masterful storytelling. "Tree of Codes" is the story of an enormous last day of life -- as one character''s life is chased to extinction, Foer multi-layers the story with immense, anxious, at times disorientating imagery, crossing both a sense of time and place, making the story of one person''s last day everyone''s story. Inspired to exhume a new story from an existing text, Jonathan Safran Foer has taken his "favorite" book, "The Street of Crocodiles" by Polish-Jewish writer Bruno Schulz, and used it as a canvas, cutting into and out of the pages, to arrive at an original new story told in Jonathan Safran Foer''s own acclaimed voice.
