    A young man arrives in the Ukraine, clutching in his hand a tattered photograph. He is searching for the woman who fifty years ago saved his grandfather from the Nazis. Unfortunately he is aided in his quest by Alex, a translator with an uncanny ability to mangle English into bizarre new forms; a 'blind' old man haunted by memories of the war; and an undersexed guide dog named Sammy Davis Jr., Jr. What they are looking for seems elusive - a truth hidden behind veils of time, language and the horrors of war.

    Oskar ist neun, er ist Erfinder, Pazifist, Schmuckdesigner und Tamburinspieler - und er hat eine Menge Fragen, auf die er dringend eine Antwort braucht. Wieso gab es den Anschlag vom 11. September? Warum musste sein Vater eines der Opfer sein? Oskar läuft durch New York, immer auf der Suche nach Antworten und nach etwas, dass ihn von den vielen Gedanken in seinem Kopf ablenkt.

    Safran Foer raubt mit seinem Tempo, seiner Sprachgewalt und seinem halsbrecherischen Witz dem Hörer den Atem. Und er lässt einen verstehen, dass manchmal nur Phantasie hilft, den Irrsinn der Welt zu ertragen.
