The History of Love characters à 107 Rlebt hat eine bewegte Biografie gefunden und seine Hauptfigur hat einem Mädchen den Namen gegeben Die wiederum macht sich auf dem Weg nach seinem Verfasser Die Reise führt über drei Kontinente und tief hinein in die Geschichte des Judentums und der Zerstörun. One of the last books I read in 2017 was Virginia Woolf s A Room of One Own In this series of essays Woolf maintains that if a woman has a room of her own in which to write then she is than capable of producing the same if not greater works than men While pondering my 2018 classics bingo and what book to use as a free suare my thoughts turned to Nicole Krauss I finally discovered Krauss last year having read both Great House and Forest Dark The prose in both novels was superb leading literary critics to dub Krauss as one of the greatest Jewish writers since Kafka Krauss has a desk of her own in which to write discussing it at length in Great House I decided it would be appropriate to use my bingo free suare for her History of Love another of her novels that weaves together multiple plot lines in Kafka like fashion Leopold Gursky is approaching the age of his death As he nears his final hour he can not help but reminisce about his childhood home in Slonim near Minsk and his boyhood friends Bruno Schulz real life author of Streets of Crocodiles and Zvi Litvinoff All three men decided upon careers in writing in their youth before the Nazis invaded Poland and shattered their dreams Before Jewish life in Slonim ended young Leopold Gursky fell in love with Alma Mereminski With a name meaning soul and a body strikingly beautiful Gursky decided at age ten that Mereminski would be the one true love of his life even carving their initials into a special tree The young lovebirds knew that their love was something special however the Nazis posed an even greater threat and the Mereminski family fled to New York in 1941 not before Alma became pregnant with Leo s child something neither was aware of Hiding in the forest for the duration of the war Leo reached New York years later and learned about his son s existence Named Isaac after a great Jewish Russian writer the boy would go on to become a prolific writer in his own right yet pain Leo for the rest of his life Prior to going into hiding Leo had written a manuscript that was close to his heart entitled The History of Love He entrusted Zvi Litvinoff with this book for safekeeping knowing that Litvinoff was fortunate enough to be leaving for the safety of Chile Little did Gursky know that years later Litvinoff would change the language from Yiddish to Spanish and pass off this elouent book as his own Years later fourteen year old Alma Singer named for the protagonist in History of Love stumbles across a letter from one Jacob Marcus who is asking Alma s mother Charlotte to translate the book from Spanish to English The Singer family has been grieving over the death of their husbandfather Daniel for the last seven years and Alma believes that translating this book would make her mother happy again As she discovers discarded translations in the trash Alma undergoes a personal uest to discover who her namesake was and why this protagonist named Alma profoundly moved her father to gift his copy of The History of Love to her mother In this process of self discovery Alma unearths many answers as well as uestions about both her father her namesake and their past In true Krauss fashion she weaves together these three plot lines without either protagonist knowing of each other s existence Gursky lives inside his memories hoping for one chance meeting with his son who has know idea who his real father is Alma is also searching for Alma Mereminski or someone who can provide clues as to who she was Encouraged by her uncle to stop constantly grieving for her father she is urged to step outside of her comfort zone of writing and books As she matures Alma learns clues about the History of Love her father and herself Meanwhile Krauss intersperses the sections about Gursky and Singer with the story of Litvinoff s life in Chile and how History of Love came to be All three stories are moving and eventually come to a nexus toward the novel s denouement As with Nicole Krauss two other novels that I have read in History of Love I experienced mature literary fiction which had a profound impact on me I think I was moved the most by this novel because I have a daughter named Alma and I was touched by the protagonist Alma s capacity to love amidst her grieving This added personal twist seems to be a page out of Krauss mature style of writing that I have come to love and look forward to She has certainly done well given a room of her own in which to write and has become a leading contemporary literary fiction author Having caught up with her novels I happily anticipate the day she publishes her next novel whenever that may be 5 stars

The great tragedy of life is this then our friends are not allowed to finish their stories My second reading of this book bore out my feeling the first time I read it The first two hundred pages are a stunningly beautiful and moving account of love and loss and the stories hidden within stories and then of a sudden it s as if Krauss handed the novel over to her distinctly less talented husband to finish off the book She ruins it with the fourth of her narrators the entirely preposterous whimsy of Bird who is a kind of identikit of Foer s eually irritating cutesy cutesy little boy narrator in Extremely Loud Bird is a mistake and the attempt to add still madcap tomfoolery and another search for a missing person a person who doesn t exist is just daft Bird as a character is a joke that simply isn t funny And to make another mystery of a mystery to create another story with the honeycomb of stories backfires horribly so late in the novel I don t think I ve ever read a novel that punctures so catastrophically towards the end and has left me feeling so angry and cheated I d forgotten how beautiful most of this novel is How poignantly and succinctly Krauss conveys the childhood love of two Jewish children before the Nazis arrive How magically she recreates Leo s memory And how alive and full of the heart is the old man recollecting himself as a boy in the narrative Leo is a brilliant and heartwarming depiction of old age just as Alma is a fabulous evocation of adolescence Krauss writes brilliantly about love in all of its forms She s got a marvellous eye for epiphanies and evokes them with searing poetic simplicity And the multi layered form of the novel where three narrators are each telling missing parts of each other s stories is brilliantly achieved It also works great as a literary detective story Almost you have to keep a list of the clues as you re reading So absolutely brilliant until Krauss ultimate recourse to whimsy as if she and her husband were sharing some private joke and which comes very close to spoiling the poignant moving emotional fabric of this novel
