Foer's 'Extremely Loud' Follows 'Illuminated'

Twenty-eight year old author Jonathan Foer found his first critical success at 25, with his novel Everything is Illuminated. Three years later, Foer was reported to have received a million-dollar advance for his latest novel, Extremely Loud and Incredilby Close. The book tells the story and pain of a man whose father died on Sept. 11, 2001.
