Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspired by her four grandparents (from four different countries), Krauss tells the story of a man who, 60 years ago in the Polish village where he was born, fell in love and wrote a book. And though he doesn't know it, that book survived, inspiring fabulous circumstances, even love. Unabridged. 8 CDs.

Synopsis:

Leo Gursky is a man who fell in love at the age of ten and has been in love ever since. Sixty years ago in the Polish village where he was born, Leo fell in love and wrote a book in honor of his love. These days he's living in America and assumes that the book, and his dreams, are irretrievably lost, until one day they return to him in a brown envelope. Meanwhile, a young girl, hoping to find a cure for her mother's loneliness, stumbles across the book that changed her mother's life and goes in search of its author. Soon these and other worlds collide in a truly captivating story of the power of love, of loneliness and of survival. This novel was inspired by the author's four grandparents (from four different countries) and by a host of authors whose work is haunted by loss: Bruno Schultz, Franz Kafka, Isaac Babel. It is truly a History of Love, brimming with laughter, irony, passion, and soaring imagination.
