Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Here I Am by Jonathan Safran Foer, read by Ari Fliakos. A monumental new novel about modern family lives from the best-selling author of Everything Is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
God asked Abraham to sacrifice his beloved son, Isaac, and Abraham replied obediently, 'Here I am'.
This is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. Over the course of three weeks in present-day Washington, DC, three sons watch their parents' marriage falter and their family home fall apart. Meanwhile, a larger catastrophe is engulfing another part of the world: a massive earthquake devastates the Middle East, sparking a pan-Arab invasion of Israel.
With global upheaval in the background and domestic collapse in the foreground, Jonathan Safran Foer asks us: what is the true meaning of home? Can one man ever reconcile the conflicting duties of his many roles - husband, father, son? And how much of life can a person bear?
