Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - A Novel
So begins a quest that takes Oskar - inventor, letter-writer and amateur detective - across New York's five boroughs and into the jumbled lives of friends, relatives and complete strangers. He gets heavy boots, he gives himself little bruises and he inches ever nearer to the heart of a family mystery that stretches back fifty years. But will it take him any closer to, or even further from, his lost father?
'Pulsates with dazzling ideas and intelligent writing.'
~ The Times Literary Supplement -
'Utterly engaging. From the very first page it is a hugely involving read...a heartbreaker: tragic, funny, intensely moving.'
