ONE OF THE MOST LOVED NOVELS OF THE DECADE.
A long-lost book reappears, mysteriously connecting an old man searching for his son and a girl seeking a cure for her widowed mother’s loneliness.
Leo Gursky taps his radiator each evening to let his upstairs neighbor know he’s still alive. But it wasn’t always like this: in the Polish village of his youth, he fell in love and wrote a book. . . . Sixty years later and half a world away, fourteen-year-old Alma, who was named after a character in that book, undertakes an adventure to find her namesake and save her family. With virtuosic skill and soaring imaginative power, Nicole Krauss gradually draws these stories together toward a climax of “extraordinary depth and beauty” (Newsday).

Beautiful and heart breaking.
This book completely hooked my attention. Lovely, lovely. Definitely a book that I would reread many times and always recommend. My emotions were extremely touched by the main characters.
A must read.
I'm in love with this book.
