It's Katie Peterson's job to be a mouthy DJ, but being mouthy just got personal. Jess Harkins has started construction on a 60-story office tower next to Katie's quaint local radio station. She'd hate his building anyway: Who needs another high-rise? But Katie especially dislikes having her view blocked by the guy who turned down the chance to be her "first". So it's time for a little payback.

If you want a sexy novel, it's not this one. I can't imagine why she bothered writing it and anyone bothered to publish it.

Nicole Krauss' first novel, Man Walks Into a Room, was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Award and her short fiction has been collected in Best American Short Stories. Now The History of Love proves Krauss is among our finest and freshest literary voices.

You must be alert to catch all the details of this book, but it is worth every minute of your attention. The charactors are threaded together slowly - each one narrated by a different voice. It is a book worth a second listen just to pick up little tidbits of the story missed the first time around. I sighed at the conclusion and felt my heart expand alittle.
