In the hands of a less gifted writer, unraveling this tangled web could easily give way to complete chaos. However, under Krausss watchful eye, these twists and turns only strengthen the impact of this enchanting book.The History of Love spans aperiod of over 60 years and takes readers from Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe to present day Brighton Beach. At the center of each main characters 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 Im out, Ill buy a juice even though Im not thirsty.) Fourteen-year-old Alma Singer vacillates between wanting to memorialize her dead father and finding a way to lift her mothers veil of depression. At the same time, shes 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, its the absolute belief in the uninteruption of love that makes this novel a pleasure, and a wonder to behold. --Gisele Toueg
