FROM THIS EPISODE

In Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Houghton Mifflin), the young Jonathan Safran Foer (28) offers an even younger narrator (9) whose father died in the bombing of the World Trade Center. In this conversation, we focus on the artistic decisions that led Foer to fill his text with pictures, blank spaces, and typographical tricks. Do these represent the half-formed traumatized memory of the very young?

Read an excerpt from Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
