Introducing Jonathan Safran Foer, fellow author Michael Cunningham tells listeners, "It is a novelist's job to portray the world with all its illusions of blandness burned away." Indeed, at the tender age of 28 Foer has crafted a style uniquely his own, attracting his share of success and controversy in the process. In this 92nd Street Y seminar, Foer - acerbic and casual, much like his characters - performs selections from his own works, including his breakthrough debut, Everything Is Illuminated, and his best-selling follow-up,Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
