Jonathan Safran Foer’s Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close features a 9-year-old protagonist, inventor & pacifist Oskar Schell, who is as original and surreal as Foer’s pyrotechnic way with words. After his father’s death in 9/11, imaginative Oskar sets on a journey throughout NYC to find meaning in a single artifact left behind by his father: a key. An incredible journey through the human experience and what it means to lose.
