    Liebe Leser,Das Buch des Monats im September ist Here I am von Jonathan Safran Foer.Here I am ist sein erster Roman seit vor zehn Jahren Extrem Laut und Unglaublich Nah erschienen ist.Das Buch umfasst fast 600 Seiten, deshalb fallen die Leseabschnitte dieses Mal sehr unterschiedlich aus. DAS BUCHGod asked Abraham to sacrifice his beloved son Isaac, and Abraham replied obediently, 'Here I am'.This is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. Over the course of three weeks in present-day Washington DC, three sons watch their parents' marriage falter and their family home fall apart. Meanwhile, a larger catastrophe is engulfing another part of the world: a massive earthquake devastates the Middle East, sparking a pan-Arab invasion of Israel. With global upheaval in the background and domestic collapse in the foreground, Jonathan Safran Foer asks us - what is the true meaning of home? Can one man ever reconcile the conflicting duties of his many roles - husband, father, son? And how much of life can a person bear?DER AUTORJonathan Safran Foer is the author of Everything Is Illuminated, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and Eating Animals. He has also edited a new modern edition of the sacred Jewish Haggadah. He edited the anthology A Convergence of Birds and his stories have been published in the Paris Review, Conjunctions and the New Yorker. Everything Is Illuminated won the National Jewish Book Award and the Guardian First Book Award. Jonathan Safran Foer teaches Creative Writing at New York University.Zu gewinnen gibt es 25 Exemplare. In den Lostopf kommt jeder, der uns diese Frage beantwortet:Warum kauft ihr englische Bücher?HIER GEHT’S ZUR LESEPROBEViel Erfolg und liebe Grüße,Svenja
