Everything Is Illuminated, Jonathan Safran Foer’s stunning debut, tells the story of a young Jewish American’s quixotic journey into an unexpected past. Foer then turned his talent to the traumas of our recent history in his exhilarating second novel, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. This beautiful edition brings together, for the first time, two works from one of this generation’s most original writers.

For Everything Is Illuminated:
"It's hard to get through the first chapter of 'Everything Is Illuminated.' The problem is, you keep laughing out loud, losing your place, starting again, then stopping because you're tempted to call your friends and read them long sections of Jonathan Safran Foer's assured, hilarious prose ... At one point, Jonathan Safran Foer tells Alex that he feels he was born to be a writer. As Alex would say, the reader will harmonize completely. 'Everything Is Illuminated' is endearing, accomplished - and (to quote Alex one last time) definitely premium." - Francine Prose, New York Times Book Review"Rarely does a writer as young as Jonathan Foer display such virtuosity and wisdom. His prose is clever, challenging, willfully constructed to make you read it again and again. His novel is madly complex, at times confusing, overlapping, unforgiving. But read it, and you'll feel altered, chastened - seared in the fire of something new." - Marie Arana, Washington Post Book World[A] dazzling literary high-wire act ... brilliant ... The payoff is extraordinary: a fearless, acrobatic, ultimately haunting effort to combine inspired mischief with a grasp of the unthinkable." - Janet Maslin, New York Times"A certified wunderkind at 25 ...a funny, moving ... deeply felt novel about the dangers of confronting the past and the redemption that comes with laughing at it, even when that seems all but impossible." - Time For Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close:
"Jonathan Safran Foer's second novel is everything one hoped it would be - ambitious, pyrotechnic, riddling, and above all, in its portrait of orphaned Oskar, extremely moving. An exceptional achievement." -- Salman Rushdie
"...a magnificent story of grief and healing, of silence kept and silence broken, of undying hope for human connection and the courage to imagine a world without war...Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (Houghton Mifflin) should be required reading, in schools, in families, at the Pentagon and in the Pentagon equivalents all over the world.  Jonathan  Safran Foer has created an unforgettable character in Oskar, and a funny, wise, deeply compassionate novel that will renew readers faith that the right book at the right time sill has the power to change the world" -- Pam Houston, O, the Oprah Magazine "Inventive and imaginative, illustrated with photographs and enlivened by verbal pyrotechnics, EXTREMELY LOUD & INCREDIBLY CLOSE eludes the second-novel jinx and displays the gifts -- Foer's energy, imagination, ambition and humor -- that made his first book, EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED, such a success." -- Francine Prose, People Magazine
