It restores your faith in fiction. It restores all sorts of faith.--Ali Smith
Nicole Krauss's gripping new voice doesn't work its way into the pantheon of American voices: it literally walks straight up to them and asks them to move over.--Andre Aciman
Vertiginously exciting...Beyond the vigorous whiplash that keeps The History of Love moving (and keeps its reader off balance until a stunning finale), this novel is tightly packed with ingenious asides...Even at their most oddball, these flourishes reflect the deep, surprising wisdom that gives this novel its ultimate heft.--Janet Maslin "New York Times"
At least as heartbreaking as it is hilarious.-- "Washington Post"
Krauss writes like an angel.-- "Guardian"
One of the most passionate vindications of the written word in recent fiction. It takes one's breath away.-- "Spectator"
It's the sort of book that makes life bearable after all.-- "Miami Herald"
A significant novel, genuinely one of the year's best. Emotionally wrenching yet intellectually rigorous, idea-driven but with indelible characters and true suspense.-- "New York"
Big, bold, twist-your-heart sad, kick-your-heels joyful--Nicole Krauss's brilliant novel is as deep and multifaceted as love itself.-- "Marie Claire"
