Jonathan Safran Foer

Renowned for placing “his reader’s hand on the heart of human experience” (Philadelphia Inquirer), Jonathan Safran Foer is the bestselling author of the frenetically irreverent, emotionally urgent novels Everything Is Illuminated, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and Here I Am. Also the nonfiction author of Eating Animals, a philosophical investigation into the carnivorous human condition, Foer is the recipient of many literary honors, including the Guardian First Book Award and the National Jewish Book Award. In We Are the Weather, he issues an urgent call to sacrifice current relative comfort for the sake of humanity’s future, one that begins with what we collectively eat and don’t eat at breakfast.
