Jonathan Safran Foer (2016 Event)

The bestselling US author of Everything is Illuminated launches his first novel in 11 years. Jonathan Safran Foer’s Here I Am is the story of a fracturing New York family, set against the backdrop of a much wider catastrophe as an earthquake engulfs the Middle East, sparking a pan-Arab invasion of Israel. Clever, courageous and delightfully irreverent, Safran Foer unveils one of this year’s most talked about novels in this event filmed live at the 2016 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
