Book 9: The History of Love

This morning, I spent a few (too brief) hours with Nicole Krauss' lovely novel, The History of Love. According to the reviews on the book jacket, the book is "marvelous" and "astonishing" and "ingenious" while also being "brilliant" and "hilarious" and "heartbreaking." Really: Who am I to argue with reviewers when they are right.

I loved it and -- like many great works this week -- only wished to spend even a few more pages with the characters Krauss created. Highly recommended.
