Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With only a yellowing photograph in hand, a young man — also named Jonathan Safran Foer — sets out to find the woman who may or may not have saved his grandfather from the Nazis. Accompanied by an old man haunted by memories of the war; an amorous dog named Sammy Davis, Junior, Junior; and the unforgettable Alex, a young Ukrainian translator who speaks in a sublimely butchered English, Jonathan is led on a quixotic journey over a devastated landscape and into an unexpected past.

Synopsis:

Foer's critically acclaimed, "New York Times" bestselling novel is now adapted for the big screen by Warner Independent Pictures, starring Elijah Wood and directed by Liev Schreiber, scheduled for limited release in September.
