Here I Am




Exuberantly funny and deeply moving, a monumental American novel about family, identity and modern life

Jacob and Julia Bloch have a problem. While they've been coaxing Jacob's grandfather into a retirement home, bracing themselves for a family reunion, and struggling to keep their eldest son from being expelled, a discovery is made that risks destroying their marriage. And as domestic crises multiply in the foreground, a global disaster is looming on the horizon...

Confronting the enduring question of what it means to be human with inventiveness, irreverence and compassion, Here I Am is a great American novel for our times, a masterpiece about how we live now.
