    Jonathan Safran Foer Everything Is Illuminated Dutton 2002My what a clever novelIn any case that I imagine is what Jonathan Safran Foer kept saying as he was writing this And really much about it is clever The comparisons to A Clockwork Orange are completely unwarranted as Alex Foer's Ukrainian hero destroys the English language in a uite different way than does Burgess' Alex A less politically correct but conceptually accurate c

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. I watched the movie of this first and loved it It was basically a movie about cultural misunderstanding and how people can be cruel without really knowing it It is a story about what happens when you put an American and someone born out of the Soviet era in the same room and try to make them explain to one another why the other one thinks the way they do In a word hilariousAfter reading the book I still like the movie but it seems obvious to me that the filmmakers missed the point entirely The book while still a hilarious exploration of an American immersed in post Soviet culture is so much deeper and weirderThe story is sort of about the author Jonathan Safran Foer He is an aspiring writer in his early 20s who travels to Ukraine to try to find the small Jewish village of Trachimbrod where his grandfather grew up and to find the woman who helped him escape the Nazis during the war He speaks no Ukrainian or Russian and his only maps of the area are 60 years old so he enlists the help of Alexander an Odessa native of about the same age his blind grandfather who acts as their driver if you have read any modern Russian literature you will understand not to uestion this kind of thing and their deranged seeing eye bitch Sammy Davis Junior JuniorHalf of the story the half on which the movie is based is ostensibly written by Alex He write in English with an accent in that I assume it was written then rewritten by looking up every third word in the thesaurus and replacing it with the least appropriate synonym This section is a humorous touching narrative touching on the nature of friendship grief and regret among other things It is accessible and easy to understandThe other half which is entirely ignored by the movie is written by Jonathan and covers the history of the village from the day it got its name in 1791 until its destruction by the Nazis in 1941 following the exploits of his ancestors All of these sections have a very surreal uality They jump around in time different eras have glimpses into the past and future Everything that happens is completely bizarre and makes no sense It explores much difficult topics such as the nature of life love and art and is in general much philosophical and harder to get your head aroundThese sections are split by letters from Alexander to Jonathan commenting on Jonathan s sections and introducing his own next sectionThe weird thing about this book is that at least for me it gets frustrating to read the author s crazy attempts at philosophy He wanders around so much it seems like he is trying to write a little mini story for every emotion he s every experienced in his entire life Normally I would discard a book like this and say Well it s a young author s overeager first attempt and he tried to cover too much However there are so many parts in Alex s letters and narrative where these things are addressed once Jonathan says something like I want to be a writer but I m not good yet and Alex asks a lot of uestions like Why do you write like this and Why did you have the characters do that The incoherence of it all becomes a part of the greater logic of the novel which in turn provides an answer to the uestion Why did Jewish people stay in Poland and Ukraine when they knew the Nazis were coming This books answer I imagine would be Because nothing anyone did in the village s 150 year history made sense why should they have done the sensible thing in 1941The book is hilarious moving and disturbing among other things I can t help but be annoyed by its weird narrative and pointless philosophical musings but given that it bathes itself in its own strangeness it raises itself up and becomes a pretty awesome book Broken Horse (Saddle Club, to find Sarah Keys Back Sufferers Bible the woman who may or may not have saved his grandfather.
