The History of Love

Hi, Bookies:

By a wide margin, our winner is The History of Love, Nicole Krauss’s tender, wry, surprising novel about a novel, also called The History of Love, that ties together two lonely people: an elderly emigrant of Nazi-occupied Poland and a teenage girl who’s nursing her own deeply felt loss. Real Simple Associate Research Editor Claudia Bloom will be our August discussion leader, and before the week is out she’ll say hello and let us know what our reading schedule will be. In the meantime, don’t forget to post any questions you have for Gillian Flynn about Gone Girl by EOD this Friday, July 27. Have a great week, Bookies!
