Jonathan Safran Foer burst onto the literary scene at the age of twenty five – his first book Everything is Illuminated was playful, experimental and much praised. Now nearing 40, he’s publishing his third novel, Here I Am, which brings together two distinct strands: the story of a disintegrating marriage in Washington, and the backdrop of an earthquake in Israel and war in the Middle East.
In a frank and fascinating interview he talks about combining the two narratives in, why he thinks of this as the least autobiographical, but most personal, of his novels, and why it took him ten years to write.”
