Jonathan Safran Foer, Cut Up

By posted at 9:30 am on November 15, 2010 2

Did you know that a new Jonathan Safran Foer book is coming out this week? We didn’t until we saw a mention of it at Kottke. More surprising is the form of the book itself. Foer has created a new work called Tree of Codes by cutting out sections of one of his favorite books, The Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Shulz. The die-cut, Kindle-proof volume is the first major title by London-based Visual Editions. Vanity Fair has more.

    Just in time for the holiday shopping season. As if the repackaged combo of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and Everything is Illuminated isn’t enough.

    No, my novel is called “Cut Up”. Burrough’s technique is called the cut-up technique.
