Jonathan Safran Foer's Everything is Illuminated won the
Guardian First Book Award in 2002. It tells the story of a young man
who goes to the Ukraine in search of the woman who saved his
grandfather from the Nazis. He is aided in his quest by a blind old
man, a randy guide dog and a very, very bad translator. It is funny,
moving and gripping and we guarantee you won't have read anything quite
like it before.
