Here I Am

by Jonathan Safran Foer - £8.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241966389 | ISBN 10: 0241966388

Jacob and Julia Bloch are about to be tested...
 
By Jacob's grandfather, who won't go quietly into a retirement home.
By the family reunion, that everyone is dreading.
By their son's heroic attempts to get expelled.
And by the sexting affair that will rock their marriage.
 
A typical modern American family, the Blochs cling together even as they are torn apart. Which is when catastrophe decides to strike...
 
Confronting the enduring question of what it means to be human with inventiveness, playfulness and compassion, Here I Am is a great American family novel for our times, an unmissable read for fans of Jonathan Franzen and Michael Chabon, a masterpiece about how we live now.

"Towering and glorious: a tale of social, familial and marital breakdown and the End of the World. The funniest literary novel I have ever read."
(The Times)
