A Novel Bunch


MacPhee-Sigurdson, Ben, Winnipeg Free Press

It would seem this year's slate of fall fiction by both Canadian and international writers is nothing less than stacked. Here are 10 titles to watch for in the coming months...

Here I Am

By Jonathan Safran Foer

Sept. 6

It's been 11 years since Foer's last novel, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close . The critically acclaimed young American writer returns with the dual storyline of a fractured Jewish family of five in Washington, D.C., and an earthquake in the Middle East that results in an invasion of Israel.
