Nicole Krauss's The History of Love is a hauntingly beautiful novel about two characters whose lives are woven together in such complex ways that even after the last page is turned, the reader is left to wonder what really happened. In the hands of a less gifted writer, unraveling this tangled web could easily give way to complete chaos. However, under Krauss's watchful eye, these twists and turns only strengthen the impact of this enchanting book.

The History of Love spans of period of over 60 years and takes readers from Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe to present day Brighton Beach. At the center of each main character's psyche is the issue of loneliness, and the need to fill a void left empty by lost love. Leo Gursky is a retired locksmith who immigrates to New York after escaping SS officers in his native Poland, only to spend the last stage of his life terrified that no one will notice when he dies. ("I try to make a point of being seen. Sometimes when I'm out, I'll buy a juice even though I'm not thirsty.") Fourteen-year-old Alma Singer vacillates between wanting to memorialize her dead father and finding a way to lift her mother's veil of depression. At the same time, she's trying to save her brother Bird, who is convinced he may be the Messiah, from becoming a 10-year-old social pariah. As the connection between Leo and Alma is slowly unmasked, the desperation, along with the potential for salvation, of this unique pair is also revealed.

The poetry of her prose, along with an uncanny ability to embody two completely original characters, is what makes Krauss an expert at her craft. But in the end, it's the absolute belief in the uninteruption of love that makes this novel a pleasure, and a wonder to behold. --Gisele Toueg -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Pressestimmen

At least as heartbreaking as it is hilarious.

Brilliant. An achievement of extraordinary depth and beauty.

The novel s achievement is precisely, and not negligibly, this: to have made a new fiction alternately delightful and hilarious and deeply affecting.

Moving and virtuosic.

Luminous prose. . . . Krauss is a masterful storyteller . . . a writer of astonishing breadth.

Ingenious.

A significant novel, genuinely one of the year 's best. Emotionally wrenching yet intellectually rigorous, idea-driven but with indelible characters and true suspense.

It's the sort of book that makes life bearable after all.

Nicole Krauss's Leo Gursky is all voice--frisky, aching, jittery, stunning, heart-rending, irresistible. There's nothing like his voice, nor will there ever be. A cross between I.B. Singer and Woody Allen, Kafka and Leopold Bloom, [it] doesn't just work its way into the pantheon of American voices: it literally walks straight up to them and asks them to move over--or else it will haunt their living days and nights. And it does just that. --Andre Aciman

A significant novel, genuinely one of the year's best. Emotionally wrenching yet intellectually rigorous, idea-driven but with indelible characters and true suspense.

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"

Krauss writes like an angel.

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."

One of the most passionate vindications of the written word in recent fiction. It takes one's breath away.

Big, bold, twist-your-heart sad, kick-your-heels joyful--Nicole Krauss's brilliant novel is as deep and multifaceted as love itself.

Nicole Krauss's gripping new voice doesn't work its way into the pantheon of American voices: it literally walks straight up to them and asks them to move over.--Andre Aciman -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.
