Best-selling author Jonathan Safran Foer reads from his new novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. He is introduced by novelist Michael Cunningham, perhaps best known for The Hours, winner of The Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1998.This event took place on April 4, 2005.
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.
