Publisher's Summary

Longlisted for the 2017 International Dylan Thomas Prize

Jacob and Julia Bloch are about to be tested....

By Jacob's grandfather, who won't go quietly into a retirement home. By the family reunion that everyone is dreading. By their son's heroic attempts to get expelled. And by the sexting affair that will rock their marriage. A typical modern family, the Blochs cling together even as they are torn apart. Which is when catastrophe decides to strike...

Confronting the enduring question of what it means to be human with inventiveness, playfulness, and compassion, Here I Am is the great family novel for our times, a masterpiece about how we live now.

Critic Reviews

"Brilliant, always original.... Certain set pieces...show a masterly sense of timing and structure and deep feeling.... Foer strews small, semiprecious comic and gnomic gems all along the trail he is breaking... Here I Am is not only the novel's title but also, maybe, an announcement of its ambitious and crazy-talented author's literary residence - an announcement that not only his location but his basic sensibility and very identity are to be found in this work." (Daniel Menaker, The New York Times Book Review)
"Foer writes like a dream...big-hearted, courageous and jaw-droppingly clever." (Deborah Moggach, best-selling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel)
