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.

Extrem gut und unglaublich gelungen – der neue Roman von Jonathan Safran Foer Wie wunderbar er erzählen kann, hat Jonathan Safran Foer schon in seinem ersten Roman Alles ist erleuchtet bewiesen. Mit der unvergesslichen Geschichte des kleinen Oskar Schell, der am 11. September den Vater verloren hat, zeigt Foer erneut sein literarisches Können. Ein mutiges Buch, gefühlsstark, traurig und komisch zugleich. Oskar Schell ist neun Jahre alt. Wie er auf seiner Visitenkarte mitteilt, ist er Pazifist, Erfinder, Schmuckdesigner, Tamburinspieler. Vor allem aber ist er tief traurig und verstört über den Tod seines Vaters. Mit dem Tamburin läuft Oskar durch New York, auf der Suche nach einem Türschloss, in das ein geheimnisvoller Schlüssel aus den Hinterlassenschaften des Vaters passen könnte. Auf dieser Odyssee begegnet Oskar, der den Grund für den sinnlosen Tod des Vaters herausfinden will, vielen ungewöhnlichen Menschen und gerät in aberwitzige Abenteuer. Verbunden mit Oskars Geschichte ist die seiner deutschen Großeltern, die nach der Bombardierung Dresdens, gezeichnet von Trauer und Verlust, nach New York geflüchtet sind. Drei Schicksale, drei Stimmen. Foer gelingt es, das bewegende Schicksal einer Familie darzustellen und zu zeigen, dass Schmerz und Komik, Sprachlosigkeit und Absurdität unglaublich nah beieinander liegen. Der Text ist durchzogen von Bildern,

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Anglistik American Studies), course: Graduate Seminar American Studies- 9/11 in American Literature and Popular Culture, language: English, abstract: After a traumatizing event it is psychologically well-known that adequate words are hard to find in order to express emotions and fears. As an example, 9/11 was not only a worldchanging tragedy; it also influenced and radically changed the personal lives of many, having to cope with loss and trauma. Looking at post- 9/11 fictional novels, Jonathan Safran Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is a story about nine-year old Oskar who has lost his father in the World Trade Center on the day of the attacks. It describes his journey through New York City, trying to find a lock belonging to a key he found of his deceased father. Interpreting the novel as a trauma narrative, the story evokes themes of loss and coping, not only of Oskar but also of his mother and grandparents. Because mourning oftentimes leads to aporia, Jonathan Safran Foer employs a wide range of stylistic heterogeneity, representing the unspeakable in numerous ways throughout the

The enormous adverse psychological side effects resulting from the 9/11 at-tacks are represented by 13% of lower Manhattan residents even seven years afterwards. Foer has a walk-over attracting a large readership because he utilizes this topic. His rea-dership could have been even bigger if they would have known about the practical im-plementation of coping strategies creatively hidden in the subtext. It is the main goal of this text to reveal major PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) symptoms in the main characters in a partly scientific/literary analysis and thus give an idea how the 40% of New York City's affected school children might have felt in the aftermath of September 11. Relevant coping strategies that ensure a general health-related quality of life can be experienced in a beautiful story about a boy that exceeds his emotional boundaries with the help of his closer and farther related social environment.

Ein altes Haus, eine ungesühnte Schuld und die Brüste von Tante Sonja – Louise Erdrich, die große amerikanische Erzählerin, führt uns nach North Dakota. Im Zentrum ihres gefeierten Romans steht der 14jährige Joe, der ein brutales Verbrechen an seiner Mutter rächt und dabei zum Mann wird. Im Sommer 1988 wird die Mutter des 14-jährigen Joe Coutts Opfer eines brutalen Verbrechens. Sie schließt sich in ihrem Zimmer ein und verweigert die Aussage. Vater und Sohn wissen nicht, wie sie sie zurück ins Leben holen können. Da sich der Überfall auf der Nahtstelle dreier Territorien ereignet hat, sind drei Behörden mit den Ermittlungen befasst. Selbst Joes Vater sind als Stammesrichter die Hände gebunden. So beschließt Joe, den Gewalttäter selbst zu finden. Mit seinen Freunden Cappy, Angus und Zack unternimmt er teils halsbrecherische, teils urkomische Ermittlungsversuche. Bei seiner aufreizenden Tante und im Kreis katholischer Pfadfinderinnen begegnet er der Liebe – und in alten Akten dem Schlüssel des Verbrechens...
