“Dazzling . . . A profound novel about the claims of identity, history, family, and the burdens of a broken world.”
NPR

Jonathan Safran Foer, the bestselling and award-winning author of Everything Is IlluminatedExtremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and Eating Animals, delivers a “brilliantly funny, stealthily heart-crushing” new novel with Here I Am.

An instant New York Times bestseller, New York Times “Notable Book of the Year”, a Time Magazine “Top 10 Books of the Year”, and named “Best Book of the Year” by The Washington Post and Amazon, Here I Am is Foer’s most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet.

Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks in present-day Washington, D.C., Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia Bloch and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the meaning of home—and the fundamental question of how much aliveness one can bare.
