Jonathan Safran Foer reads from and discusses his bestelling novel on 9/11, now in paperback, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

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.

Foer’s novel has been one of the most discussed, acclaimed and debated novels in recent memory. And with good reason — as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution noted, “Jonathan Safran Foer has done something both masterful and absoluetely necessary: he has written the first great novel about September 11.”

($13.95) Houghton Mifflin ISBN #0-618-71165-1. Please visit Jonathan Safran Foer’s official web site, known as the Project Museum, as well — and explore!
