Presented by NEXTBOOK. A year after reading at Elliott Bay for her exquisitely written, hugely praised novel, The History of Love (W.W. Norton), Nicole Krauss returns with it newly released in paperback. "The History of Love has perfect pitch and does its dance of time between contemporary New York and the wanderings of the Jews with unsentimental but heart-breaking grace. [Krauss] also happens to write like an angel." - Simon Schama, The Guardian. "Extraordinary...The History of Love is a complex, funny, sad, elegantly constructed meditation on the power of love, language, and imagination...Krauss' beautifully imagined characters are funny, rueful, smart and sometimes almost unbearably poignant." - Seattle Times. Nicole Krauss' previous book, Man Walks into a Room, is also a wonder. Tickets are $8 ($6 students/under 25), available in advance at www.nextbook.org or at 1-888-621-2230 on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. For more information, call (206) 543-9031. The Tractor Tavern is located at 5213 Ballard Avenue NW.
