 “[She] happens to write like an angel.” — Simon Schama

Nicole Krauss mesmerised readers, critics and judges of literary prizes alike with The History of Love. Her third novel, Great House, a 2010 National Book Award nominee, looks set to do the same. Her writing isn’t just appreciated –  it is loved.  Her books are about memory in the face of loss, the nature of love and the strange and intimate connections fostered between people. But mostly, they are about writing, and its power to change lives.
