The History of Love: A Novel by Nicole Krauss
The History of Love: A Novel

PDX+PIT, August 4, 2012

I read this book initially for a book club, which has since folded. I recommended it to the new book club I joined. It was our favorite book of the year. The History of Love book written by the character Leo Gursky, within this book, is so beautiful in it's sparse, clean prose. That alone makes the book worth reading. The story wrapped around the book is icing on the cake making the experience delicious! I don't purposefully, re-read books too often (so many more to read) but this one is on that short-list! Highly recommended.
