Everything is Illuminated

by Jonathan Safran Foer

Jonathan hires young Alex and Alex's grandfather as his translator and driver as he visits the Ukraine to search for Augustine, whose family saved Jonathan's grandfather from the Nazis.
This isn't an easy read but what a wonderful book. The letters from Alex are at times very funny and the unravelling of what happened to Alex's grandfather during the war is truly heartbreaking.
