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).

Editorial Reviews

Vertiginously exciting…Beyond the vigorous whiplash that keeps The History of Love moving (and keeps its reader off balance until a stunning finale), this novel is tightly packed with ingenious asides…Even at their most oddball, these flourishes reflect the deep, surprising wisdom that gives this novel its ultimate heft. — Janet Maslin (New York Times)At least as heartbreaking as it is hilarious. — Washington PostKrauss writes like an angel. — GuardianOne of the most passionate vindications of the written word in recent fiction. It takes one’s breath away. — SpectatorIt restores your faith in fiction. It restores all sorts of faith. — Ali SmithIt’s the sort of book that makes life bearable after all. — Miami HeraldA significant novel, genuinely one of the year’s best. Emotionally wrenching yet intellectually rigorous, idea-driven but with indelible characters and true suspense. — New York
