2005 novel by Nicole Krauss that tells three intersecting stories. The first is about Leo Gursky, an elderly Polish immigrant who narrowly escaped the Holocaust in his youth. In the second, teenage Alma Singer, tries to cope with her father's death and keep her mother from slipping into depression. The third is the story of a book, written by Zvi Litvinoff, titled The History of Love.

The book received some criticism for being published at the same time that Krauss' husband, Jonathan Safran Foer, published Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, which also involved multiple narrators, a World War II survivor whose long-lost son recently died and a child on a quest in New York.
