Nicole Krauss' first novel, Man Walks Into a Room, was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Award and her short fiction has been collected in Best American Short Stories. Now The History of Love proves Krauss is among our finest and freshest literary voices.

It has been decades since Leo Gursky first surrendered his heart, then wrote a book about it, at the tender age of 10, and he's been in love with the same person ever since. Leo believes his book is lost to time, but what he doesn't know is, not only has it survived 60 years without him, it has also been an inspiration to others. Fourteen-year-old Alma was even named for a character from the book. When she realizes how deeply the story touched her lonely mother, she embarks on a search for answers.

The History of Love is an imaginative tale of love and loss that is at once funny, mysterious, and deeply passionate.

    " Amazing story and beautifully written! i do feel I will have to read it again because- since I was soo busy, I only got to read it one night a week for an hr or so, and that made it harder to remember exactly what was going on..and it was a twisty book. But I certainly won't mind reading it again. it was beautiful & one of those books you don't want to finish, bc it's so good. "

    " I was drawn into this story initially because of the creative writing style, and found myself captured throughout. I found it a beautiful read in spite of the darkness. "
