An update on the book Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close...it is not for the faint of heart.
It is still brilliant, makes me realize that I'm reading a Picasso when I myself am writing Dick and Jane. It is still well worth reading, and this coming from someone who lost dear friends on that horrible day. It hits all the bases- the Holocaust, Hiroshima and 9/11 with vivid reality, through the eyes of a 9 year old boy. All that said and with that warning, it is spectacular and even with all the pain, there is so much love.
