Personal Context: Recommendation from a coworker.

While remarkably dense, Everything Is Illuminated is inundated with powerful expressions of love (and not love) and truth (and not truth). Jonathan Safran Foer (the author not the character) crafted an incredible story filled with heart-crushing imagery and inimitable passion. When you arrive at the end of the story, you will likely feel as though the title is a lie, but perhaps Jonathan’s ancestry was never what truly needed illumination.
