Another Quote From EL & IC

As noted in previous blogs, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer has some great quotes in it.  Here is one in which Oskar talks about his mother and their shared loss of his father/her husband on 9/11: “I couldn’t explain to her that I missed him more, more than she or anyone else missed him, because I couldn’t tell her about what happened with the phone. That secret was a hole in the middle of me that every happy thing fell into.”

The secret Oskar refers to is a mystery throughout most of the book. It is only near the end that we find out what happened with his father and the phone on 9/11.
