Reseña del editor:

Jonathan Safran Foer emerged as one of the most original writers of his generation with his best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated. Now, with humor, tenderness, and awe, he confronts the traumas of our recent history. What he discovers is solace in that most human quality, imagination.
Meet Oskar Schell, an inventor, Francophile, tambourine player, Shakespearean actor, jeweler, pacifist, correspondent with Stephen Hawking and Ringo Starr. He is nine years old. And he is on an urgent, secret search through the five boroughs of New York. His mission is to find the lock that fits a mysterious key belonging to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11.
An inspired innocent, Oskar is alternately endearing, exasperating, and hilarious as he careens from Central Park to Coney Island to Harlem on his search. Along the way he is always dreaming up inventions to keep those he loves safe from harm. What about a birdseed shirt to let you fly away? What if you could actually hear everyone's heartbeat? His goal is hopeful, but the past speaks a loud warning in stories of those who've lost loved ones before. As Oskar roams New York, he encounters a motley assortment of humanity who are all survivors in their own way. He befriends a 103-year-old war reporter, a tour guide who never leaves the Empire State Building, and lovers enraptured or scorned. Ultimately, Oskar ends his journey where it began, at his father's grave. But now he is accompanied by the silent stranger who has been renting the spare room of his grandmother's apartment. They are there to dig up his father's empty coffin.

Descripción Mariner. 1 Paperback(s), 2005. soft. Estado de conservación: New. (Named a Best Book of 2005 by the Los Angeles Times, Washington Post Book World, the Chicago Tribune, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and the Rocky Mountain News) The inspiration for the Oscar-nominated film of the same name starring Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, and Max von Sydow, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is the story of Oskar Schell, an inventor, Francophile, tambourine player, Shakespearean actor, jeweler, and pacifist. He is nine years old, and he is on an urgent search through the five boroughs of New York City, hoping to find the lock that fits a mysterious key that belonged to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on September 11. This second novel by the author of Everything Is Illuminated (winner of the Guardian First Book Prize and National Jewish Book Award) includes photographs, unusual text layouts, and even editor's marks."Jonathan Safran Foer's second novel is everything one hoped it would be—ambitious, pyrotechnic, riddling, and above all, in its portrayal of orphaned Oskar, extremely moving. The powerful emotions generated feel deserved, not borrowed. An exceptional achievement."—Salman Rushdie 326. Nº de ref. de la librería 71268
