Chapter Abstract The hopeful reconstructive note on which House of Leaves, in spite of its dark and pessimistic immediate appearance, has been seen to conclude becomes much more pronounced in Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer. The move beyond postmodernism in House of Leaves simultaneously explores two possibilities between which the novel hovers: an extreme postmodernism which results in nihilism on the one hand, and an increased commitment in community and communication which gives expression to a reconstructive hopefulness on the other. While by no means unambiguous about its own project, Everything is Illuminated, in contrast, is much more decisive in its investment in reconstructive optimism. Combining two storylines — one relying on a mimetic stance, the other developing a fantastic narrative that explicitly leans towards the marvellous — the novel increasingly shifts its attention from the possibility or impossibility of representation towards the responsibilities of fictions, to their communicative value and their creative power.

Jay McInerney, "Observer". Made me laugh a lot".

Erica Wagner, "The Times". Jonathan Safran Foer was born in He is also the editor of "A Convergence of Birds". Haruki Murakami. Kafka on the Shore Kafka on the Shore is powered by two remarkable characters: a teenage boy, Kafka Tamura, who runs away from home either to escape a gruesome oedipal prophecy or to search for his long-missing mother and sister; and an aging simpleton called Nakata, who never recovered from a wartime affliction and now is drawn toward Kafka for reasons that, like the most basic activities of daily life, he cannot fathom.

As their paths converge, and the reasons for that convergence become clear, Haruki Murakami enfolds readers in a world where cats talk, fish fall from the sky, and spirits slip out of their bodies to make love or commit murder. William Trevor. The Story of Lucy Gault The stunning new novel from highly acclaimed author William Trevor is a brilliant, subtle, and moving story of love, guilt, and forgiveness.

The Gault family leads a life of privilege in early s Ireland, but the threat of violence leads the parents of nine-year-old Lucy to decide to leave for England, her mother's home.

Lucy cannot bear the thought of leaving Lahardane, their country house with its beautiful land and nearby beach, and a dog she has befriended. On the day before they are to leave, Lucy runs away, hoping to convince her parents to stay.

Instead, she sets off a series of tragic misunderstandings that affect all of Lahardane's inhabitants for the rest of their lives. Iain Banks. Dead Air Iain Banks' daring new novel opens in a loft apartment in the East End, in a former factory due to be knocked down in a few days. Ken Nott is a devoutly contrarian vaguely left-wing radio shock-jock living in London.

After a wedding breakfast people start dropping fruits from a balcony on to a deserted carpark ten storeys below, then they start dropping other things; an old TV that doesn't work, a blown loudspeaker, beanbags, other unwanted furniture Then they get carried away and start dropping things that are still working, while wrecking the rest of the apartment.

But mobile phones start ringing and they're told to turn on a TV, because a plane has just crashed into the World Trade Centre.

All rights reserved Review by Library Journal Review Oskar Schell is like any nine-year-old, except that he is tumbling through grief over his father's death in the attack on the World Trade Center. As his mind races to outpace reality, Oskar sets out on the ultimate scavenger hunt through New York City to discover more about a key he finds among his father's belongings.

As with his debut, Everything Is Illuminated, Foer employs colliding time lines. Here Oskar's grandparents inch toward "living" through emotional letters that release the horrors of their Dresden childhood. Only Oskar's mother remains a remote caregiver for most of the novel.

Throughout, Foer nimbly explores the misunderstandings that compound when grief silences its victims. It's hard to believe that such an inherently sad story could be so entertaining, but Foer's writing lightens the load. Oskar's rolling chatter, punctuated by stinging declarations, is often welcome comic relief.

Oskar is alive, and as he invents a safer world in his head and among all those he touches, he's also learning to live. Foer's excellent second novel vibrates with the details of a current tragedy but successfully explores the universal questions that trauma brings on its floodtide. Highly recommended.
