From the internationally best-selling author of The History of Love comes this stunning novel. Great House follows the multiple owners of one writing desk and how the desk shapes their lives. A young novelist inherited the desk from a poet taken by Pinochet's police. Then the desk is stolen from her by the poet's supposed daughter. In its drawers, another man discovers a long-kept secret about his wife. And a Jerusalem antiques dealer uses the desk in his family's study, which was devastated by the Nazis in 1944.

    " If I hadn't read The History of Love, I would have rated this book higher but she follows the same pattern with a different twist. "

    " I picked this up because of the author. I thought it was okay. I love her writing style, but The History of Love was much better. "

    " Upon finishing "Great House", I immediately picked up a piece of paper and began diagramming the relationships among the various characters. Then I reread the first section of the book. If I had more time, I would reread the whole novel again right away (but other books beckon). The story is recursive, dense with meaning, and ultimately mysterious. But it's not just an intellectual exercise. It's much too beautiful for that. "
