Abstract:

"With a different die-cut on every page, Tree of codes explores previously uncharted 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. Tree of codes is the story of an enormous last day of life--as one character's life is chased to extinction, Foer multi-layers the story with immense, anxious, at times disorienting imagery, crossing both a sense of time and place, making the story of one person's last day everyone's story. Inspired to exhume a new story from an existing text, Jonathan Safran Foer has taken his favorite 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 [the author's' own acclaimed voice"--Publisher's description.
