"Everything is Illuminated" is an inventive debut novel with a blend of tragicomedy and magical-realism. The primary character in the book is a young Jewish-American man who goes to the Ukraine in search of a piece of his family's history. The novel jumps around between different narratives. I enjoyed some parts of the book a lot more than others, but overall it was an entertaining read.
