Januar 2011
Tree of Codes, is a haunting new story by best-selling American writer, Jonathan Safran Foer. With a different die-cut on every page, Tree of Codes explores previously unchartered literary territory. Initially deemed impossible to make, the book is a first - as much a sculptural object as it is a work of masterful storytelling. Inspired to exhume a new story from an existing text, Jonathan Safran Foer has taken his favourite book, The Street of Crocodiles by Polish-Jewish writer Bruno Schulz and used it as a canvas, cutting into and out of the pages, to arrive at an original new story told in Safran Foer's own acclaimed voice. Tree of Codes is the story of 'an enormous last day of life'. As one character's life is chased to extinction, Safran Foer multi-layers the story with immense, anxious, at times disorientating imagery, crossing both a sense of time and place, making the story of one person's last day everyone's story. The book has a broad appeal: to both literary audiences, intrigued by Safran Foer's new way of writing and to design and art audiences who will revel in the book's remarkable and unique visual experience.

Mehr über den Autor

Als "Alles ist erleuchtet" erschien, war Jonathan Safran Foer gerade einmal 25 Jahre alt und wurde für sein schräges Roadmovie quasi über Nacht als "Wunderkind" und "Vertreter einer neuen Literatur" gefeiert. In Foers Erstling macht sich die Hauptfigur auf die Suche nach einer ukrainischen Frau, die einst seinen jüdischen Großvater vor den Nazis gerettet hat. Protagonist des zweiten Romans "Extrem laut und unglaublich nah" ist der neunjährige Oskar, der bei den Terroranschlägen vom 9.11.2001 seinen Vater verloren hat. Später legte Foer mit "Tiere essen" ein Buch ganz anderer Art vor: Er beleuchtet darin die moderne Massentierhaltung philosophisch, journalistisch und wissenschaftlich. Foer, der in Princeton Philosophie studiert hat, lebt mit Frau und Kindern in New York.



"[A]n extraordinary journey that activates the layers of time and space involved in the handling of a book and its heap of words. Jonathan Safran Foer deftly deploys sculptural means to craft a truly compelling story. In our world of screens, he welds narrative, materiality, and our reading experience into a book that remembers it actually has a body." -- Olafur Eliasson, artist

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing in every respect 29. November 2010
Von K. C. Andrews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Everybody I show this book to thinks it's crazy. It is first of all a completely beautiful object - I've never seen anything like it. Second, it's a beautifully written story that gave me the goose bumps. (Useful tip for other readers: I lay a sheet under the pages, when I was reading). Very much a return to the emotionally charged and experimental storytelling of Safran Foer's debut, Everything Is Illuminated.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unmistakeable and imaginative 2. Dezember 2010
Von J. B. Erickson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book is just captivating. I can't even begin to describe the pleasure of unknowing and unexpected that I experienced when I opened it for the first time. I had to have it. The 40.00 price tag, while initially seemed steep, is totally justifiable when you actually put your fingers on the cover and open the paged and touch it. You've never felt or seen or experienced a book like this. I don't want to give too much away, but this book will change you and the way you look at printed material. You'll never get this kind of connection on a Kindle or iPad or Nook or any other device. This book just goes to show you why the physical page will never cease to exist. Thank you Mr. Foer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Quite possibly Safran Foer's finest yet 24. November 2010
Von N. Johnstone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I've loved everything Jonathan Safran Foer has written to date, but this just might be his most amazing work yet. What he has done by cutting his own haunting story out of Bruno Schulz' equally haunting Street of Crocodiles, is both astonishing and incredibly poignant. The book, with its ghostly die cuts and dangling phantom punctuation, is a different kind of reading experience, for sure, but as with his other books, I devoured it in one breathless sitting.

1.0 von 5 Sternen More Than a Little Frustrated...and Utterly Bamboozled 8. Februar 2012
Von John Burns - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I loved JSF's "Everything is Clear..." as well as "Extremely Close..." and even "Eating Animals". I believe the man has talent overflowing the boundaries of normal humans . That said, I was quite excited to learn about "Tree of Codes" since the creative mind that put together these other books was a safe bet to continue his brilliance even further and I was looking forward to it with intense anticipation. Upon learning of JSF''s testimonial for "Street of Crocodiles," I bought it and read it since it was his admiration of the brilliance of that book that had inspired him to do "Code of Trees." It disappointed me for the simple fact I could not make any sense of it whatsoever. I wrote it off as perhaps a mediocre translation for the original Polish.

I ordered "T of C" from amazon even though it was a tad on the expensive side for a paperback...waited something like four months for delivery...even posted an inquiry to amazon since I was convinced they had misplaced the order...assured things were progressing as planned...it finally arrived and I dove into it with gusto.
I had read the postings of a number of his fans on the amazon site so I was fore-warned this book was more than a little out of the ordinary and might be challenging, to say the least. My reaction was, so much the better...it's JSF doing his thing and I will surely appreciate his efforts.
I began with the sheet or paper inserted behind the page being read (Suggested by previous reader) and took off running. For the uninformed, this is probably a required exercise for those of us who are unaccostumed to reading a page with perhaps 15 to 20 words on it (BTW, that would be a long page!) with large chucks of the page on which they have been printed literally cut out of the paper which means there is a gap or two (or six) not to mention difficult to handle.. My first attempt took me some twenty pages into the book before I sat back with the realization that I had absolutely no idea of the content of what I had just read. Add to that the fact I could not identify the characters involved although a second reading indicated there were two: the narrator and his/her mother, let alone the physical setting of the action...or better said, lack of. I put it aside with my previous warning that this was not going to be my ordinary reading experience. I read it a second time with much the same result. I began to worry that perhaps I was not capable of handling this book at all. I plowed on, hoping that a few pages more might open up the mysteries of this adventure. No such luck. I have read 87 pages to this point and I find myself in exactly the same spot. This is not fun. Have I gone stupid all of a sudden? A definite possibility or perhaps an admission that I had bitten off a lot more than I could chew.
Right now, I do not know what else to add. I have to decide if I should try again or simply accept the fact this one is beyond me. This is extremely uncomfortable since some reviewers claim the book is a masterpiece while it strikes me as an elaborate prank with me as the doofus mark being played like a banjo.
Ten months have passed between the above and what I am writing now. I just finished reading the remaining 47 pages with not an inkling more insight into the content of the story. I have come to the conclusion "Tree of Codes" has to be JSF's response to an imaginary challenge thrown out by NYT crossword master Will Shortz to create a puzzle to which the solution will result in utter confusion. He deserves the Grand Prize.

2.0 von 5 Sternen don't be fooled 17. Februar 2011
Von Ian David Mcgowan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Don't overpay. This book at it's MSRP is $40, and worth slightly less and certainly not in the $100-$300 range. I found it at my local bookstore for the normal retail price. Its contents are a one sided printing of The Street of Crocodiles (Classic, 20th-Century, Penguin) cut out to form an 'interesting' interpretation/new narrative.

The only way this book could be printed is in paperback, there is no hardcover.
When looking at a single page the cutout method allows the reader to see several pages down, presumably allowing one to see multiple versions of sentence structures. The printing process is not as revolutionary as the publisher would like you to believe; the pages rarely align well enough to allow for line to line reading of multiple pages, words are often obscured by pages on top. Making it nearly unreadable.

As to what can be deciphered; imagine someone took a knife to one of your favorite novellas (the source material tops out at about 150pgs).
