“Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.”
-- Nicole Krauss, The History of Love
Need a literary take on love to counterbalance the cheesy Valentines Day merchandise that is (already!) filling the stores?
Nicole Krauss' clever and romantic 2005 novel The History of Love weaves together the stories of an elderly Holocaust survivor and an American preteen with that of a lost manuscript also called "The History of Love."
