beschrijving

Jacob and Julia Bloch have a problem - several problems, in fact.

While they've been coaxing Jacob's grandfather into a retirement home, bracing themselves for a family reunion, and struggling to keep their eldest son from being expelled, a discovery is made that risks destroying their marriage.

As domestic crises multiply in the foreground, a global disaster is looming on the horizon. The Bloch family is collapsing and so is the Middle East where a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict - and every man, woman and child must decide where they will stand.

Here I Am marks an ambitious new departure for Jonathan Safran Foer, achieving extraordinary scope and emotional resonance while maintaining the trademark inventiveness and irreverence of his much-loved previous novels. Confronting the enduring question of what it means to be human, Here I Am is a great American novel for our times, a masterpiece about how we live now.
