9780141025780: History of Love

Leo Gursky taps his radiator each evening to let his upstairs neighbor know he's still alive. But it wasn't always like this: in the Polish village of his youth, he fell in love and wrote a book...Sixty years later and half a world away, fourteen-year-old Alma, who was named after a character in that book, undertakes an adventure to find her namesake and save her family. With virtuosic skill and soaring imaginative power, Nicole Krauss gradually draws these stories together toward a climax of "extraordinary depth and beauty" (Newsday).

Review:

"Vertiginously exciting." "At least as heartbreaking as it is hilarious." "Krauss writers like an angel." "One of the most passionate vindications of the written word in recent fiction. It takes one's breath away." "It restores your faith in fiction. It restores all sorts of faith." -- Ali Smith "It's the sort of book that makes life bearable after all." "A significant novel, genuinely one of the year's best. Emotionally wrenching yet intellectually rigorous, idea-driven but with indelible characters and true suspense." "Moving and virtuosic."
