Book summary

THE HISTORY OF LOVE, by NICOLE KRAUSS- Fourteen-year-old Alma singer is trying to find a cure for her mother's loneliness. Believing that she might discover it is an old book her mother is lovingly translating, she sets out in search of its author. Across New York an old man named Leo Gursky is trying to survive a little bit longer. He spends his days dreaming of the lost love who sixty years ago in Poland, inspired him to write a book. And although he doesn't know it yet, that book also survived: crossing oceans and generations, and changing lives... New York Times Bestseller / Los Angeles Times Bestseller / Denver Post Bestseller / San Francisco Chronicle Bestseller / Booksense Bestseller "Vertiginously exciting...vibrantly imagined...[Krauss is] a prodigious talent." -Janet Maslin, New York Times "At least as heartbreaking as it is hilarious." Ron Charles, Washington Post "Brilliant. An achievement of extraordinary depth and beauty." -Dan Cryer, Newsday [via]
