From the Publisher
Jonathan Safran Foer emerged as one of the most original writers of
his generation with his best-selling debut novel, Everything Is
Illuminated. Now, with humor, tenderness, and awe, he confronts the
traumas of our recent history.
Nine-year-old Oskar Schell has embarked on an urgent, secret
mission that will take him through the five boroughs of New York.
His goal is to find the lock that matches a mysterious key that
belonged to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on the
morning of September 11. This seemingly impossible task will bring
Oskar into contact with survivors of all sorts on an exhilarating,
affecting, often hilarious, and ultimately healing journey.
