tree of codes

I'm always excited when I hear the name Jonathan Safran Foer mentioned. He writes boundary-pushing, sometimes difficult books that never fail to capture the imagination. I read his first book, Everything Is Illuminated, years ago and consequently watched - and loved - the movie. Eugene Hutz, lead singer of balkan gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello, is genius as Alex in this film.

Jonathan Safran Foer also wrote a moving novel entitled Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close. His writing style is refreshingly different and very raw, and this tale of a young boy whose father was killed in 9/11, stole my heart. Now to the point of this post! Jonathan Safran Foer (man that's a handful to type) is releasing a new and brilliantly unique book, Tree Of Codes. This book promises to be mind boggling.

The man himself explains his inspiration....
