A Reader Walks into a RoomI bought "Man" after loving "The History of Love".I don't think I realised until I started reading it that "Man" was her first novel.There were times when I could understand why other readers might be tempted to give it up.I persisted out of loyalty to "History" and out of a sense of anticipation for "Great House".Little did I realise that it would (almost) have me in tears at the end.Where Did My Character Go?"Man" is not a novel of action. Yet I don't think it's quite [...]

Painful MemoriesMan loses memory entirely: nothing to write about; man loses all but the last ten minutes of memory: almost nothing to write about; man loses 24 years of memory from the age of twelve: an interesting premise for literary investigation, particularly about the relationship between memory and feeling. How much is feeling invested memory? What happens to feeling when memory disappears? What happens to memory when it becomes more concentrated in some personal epoch? Krauss's explorati [...]

Samson Greene, an English professor at Columbia, is found wandering alone in Nevada desert. Turns out he has suffered severe memory loss because of a brain tumour. He can remember nothing but his childhood. After an operation he returns to his wife who is a complete stranger to him. Soon he finds he can relate much better to one of his former young female students as if without memory of experience, experience is utterly erased and he is again a boy attracted, not to women, but to girls. This re [...]

I was so intrigued by the premise of Krauss’s 2002 debut novel: Samson Greene, a Columbia University English professor in his mid-thirties, is found wandering in the Nevada desert. He’s lost all memory of the past 24 years of his life due to a brain tumor, and after surgery has to try to rebuild a life with his wife, Anna, in New York City. I loved Part One (about the first 80 pages), but then things turn strange. Samson is invited to take part in a neurological experiment back in the Nevada [...]

The book starts off very promising. A man loses 24 years of his memory due to a brain tumor. As the book says, we’re nothing but a collection of habits and accumulation of memories. If we lose those memories and habits, we lose our self and start over with a blank slate. That should make a good concept for a very interesting novel. Instead, the story meanders through a series of irrelevant events and characters and doesn’t offer much in the end.From the few places where Krauss discusses thin [...]

(1.5) After loving Krauss's "The History of Love", I thought this book would at least be enjoyed half as much, but alas at a little bit over the 100 page mark, I leave this abandoned. Skimming a book for awhile and half-ass remembering what you've read doesn't equate to enjoyment and/or leisure for me. I guess sometimes an author only has one good book in them and it seems Krauss is going in that direction (for now). This will be taken back to the library, left to sit for awhile among the KRA's [...]

A fresh, fascinating investigation of classic themes of loneliness and isolation. Her prose is so lyrical and poetic that it takes awhile before you realize that Krauss has broken your heart.

Krauss’s second novel (The History of Love) was one of my top books from 2008, so despite a critical review of this novel (Krauss’s first) by a friend, I decided to read it anyway. I should have listened to my friend’s critical review – this book is nowhere near as good as The History of Love. The plot of this book revolves around a man named Samson Greene, a Columbia Lit professor who is found wandering the Nevada desert with no recollection of who he is or what he is doing in the deser [...]

I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this book, now that I am through with it. I am convinced that Nicole Krauss is a marvelous writer. Of that, there is no doubt. But I never fully engaged in the story here. Part of that is Samson's fault, though. I don't think he fully engaged in his story either. The ending came abruptly -- a rapid change of pace, with the epilogue in a different character voice which left me disorientated. (Ha! Just a note to add that I, too, find the use of this word dist [...]

The entire premise of this books is that a man wakes up, and has lost the memory of twenty years of his life (he only remembers up to being 12 years old). In itself, not a new concept. However, this book distinguishes itself as a truly unique work of art.Moments of this book terrified me. Krauss makes this book unique by presenting a man who, after the loss of so much, enjoys the emptiness he’s left with. He allows himself to experience every moment beyond what someone burdened with memories c [...]

I was going to give this 4 stars but changed my mind at the last few pages. Not that it ended poorly, but I just can't put my finger on it. I loved the writing and the poetic one-liners that Krauss is so good at. But I got the "first novel" vibe from this for sure in that she seemed to have SO many good things to write/ideas to share that she just inserted gratuitous paragraphs/plotlines that really did nothing for the story. Nice to read those parts since she writes so beautifully, but unneces [...]

I had to wait a couple days before I tried to write a review for this one. Sometimes I find it really difficult to explain why I loved something so much. Nicole Krauss has been one of my absolute favorite authors since I first read The History of Love. I quickly thereafter picked up Great House and then just sort of put her on hold for a while I suppose, because I knew she didn't have any new work out and for whatever reason didn't come back to this one, her first novel. I'm wondering if I could [...]

So, my reading group virtually voted to kick me out of the group whenever they decided to move our monthly meetings from Thursday to Wednesday. It's okay that I couldn't make it to the most recent meeting because I seem to like this book much less than the other reading group members here on It starts out with a thirty-something year-old man who has no memories since the age of 12. He has all these years and years of people who remember him and things that happened in his life but he doesn't rem [...]

Achingly poignant and sad. (why do I love books like this?)I was going to go with 4 or 4.5 stars, but I know already this will be one that will not leave my mind. Samson will live in there a long, long time.

This was different from The History of Love & The Great House, the other two I have read from her. More science fiction/fantasy. Intriguing, actually. About a man whom enters into a psychology experiment in which he essentially borrows another person's mind. Krauss illuminates quite ingeniously the idea that we are merely a collection of our memories. Minus them, can one really say whom we are? Delete our history, our memory, we have very little. The protagonist Samson Greene is discovered i [...]

This book had a very interesting premise: a middle-aged man loses all his memory since he was 12 but still has the sophisticated mind of an adult: how does he cope? Parts of the novel are very poignant-- mostly the scenes between Samson and his wife and Samson and his great uncle. Other parts really drag and seem caught up in vague ruminations on memory.All in all, I don't think the book hung together too well and I much prefer her other novel, _A Brief History of Love_. Maybe since I loved that [...]

This book ranks in my list of favorite books of all time. The story is about a young man, Samson Greene, who seems to have everything -- a beautiful wife, a professorship at Columbia University, a home in NYC, good friends a near-perfect life. But a strange tumor on his brain causes him to lose his memory -- all except the first 12 of his life. So the book starts with him wandering the desert near Las Vegas, mistaken for a homeless man, discovered by the police. His wife is called and by that ti [...]

I love Nicole Krauss. I read The History of Love mid 2006. I loved it, but for some reason did not hunt for other books the author had written. Perhaps I had a long enough To Read list as it was. Earlier this summer I stumbled upon this book, and after recalling how much I loved the first book of hers I’d read, decided to give her debut a go.I thoroughly enjoyed it. I read it almost start to finish without putting it down. I put it down just the once, and because I had to. I loved Samson, I lo [...]

Favorite excerpt:"He inched towards her until their sides were touching, arm to arm, leg to bare leg. Sam? she whispered. Do you think--- This was Jollie Lambird, whom he had been in love with since the second grade, and he was ready to answer any question she might have for him. But he didn't hear the rest of it because just then he kissed her, a kiss that may have lasted for hours while porch lights shuddered and went out across the neighborhood.

What if a brain tumor causes you to lose all memories of your life after the age of 12? That's what happened to Samson Greene. One day he's an English professor at Columbia University and the next, he's found wandering in the Nevada desert, with no memory of his name, what he's doing in the desert, that he's married, who his friends are, and that his mother's dead.After the tumor has been removed, Samson has to deal with living in a house he doesn't remember, a wife he doesn't recognize and a li [...]

This is the story of Samson Greene, a man who wakes up in a hospital, thousands of miles from home, after being found disoriented and alone in the desert. Initally Samson cannot remember his own name, and as memories slowly creep into his consciousness, he gets hit with the cruel reality that he has lost the past 24 years of his life due to a benign brain tumor in his temporal lobe. Samson's last memory is taken from a 12 year old's perspective and he suddenly finds himself being thrown into an [...]

Gripping. Touching. Thought provoking.What if you wake up one day with no memories of the years that have passed? Will you embrace the emptiness, start anew or go searching for answers of those echoes of the past that have shaped you to who you are at the present? Will you hold on to the people around you, who remember you as you have been, or cut them from your life, turn over a new leaf?Krauss, a very talented writer, capable of stirring into her readers such thoughts and lead them into intros [...]

I finished The History of Love wanting to read anything else by Nicole Krauss, and picked up Man Walks Into a Room the next day.This was a much more difficult book for me to get into, and ultimately I never really did. It's a very internal book, which makes sense given that it's about a man who loses several years of memory to a brain tumor. The memory loss affects his feelings towards his wife, as well as his knowledge and ability to practice his profession. In the first half in particular, the [...]

This book is beautifully written. The book is about a man who has a brain tumor and loses all his memories from ages 12-36. He retains his childhood memories up until age 12 and is able to make new memories but 24 years of his life are just gone. I tried to imagine losing all the moments that make you who are and not only having all these personal events occur and not remember them, but also the events that go on in the world and having no idea what's going on. Losing the happy moments seem to h [...]

I am a big Nicole Krauss fan. Oddly enough (well, probably because I was only 12 when it was published), I hadn't read her first novel, and this was unacceptable to me. I liked the first half of this novel, but I admittedly wasn't impressed by it, as it seemed to lack the momentum, mystery, and intricacy that "The History of Love" and "Great House" exhibit from the start. And that is probably true; it was her first published book. But the second half of the novel is where all of the "Krauss-like [...]

I once knew an art professor who would buy multiple copies of books he liked. He would put one in his back pocket and when he ran into a friend, whip out the book and give it to his friend. This is that sort of book: I want to buy a few copies and give them out to the people I love.But don't get me wrong: this is not necessarily a cheery, upbeat book.I may be peculiar; I am drawn to books about people who have lost their memories. The first book of the Monk series, by Anne Perry, for example. Ma [...]

I stumbled upon this book at the library when I was (fruitlessly) searching out a copy of The History of Love. I recently read Krauss' Great House and really enjoyed it -- and I think I'll still give The History of Love a shot whenever I can get my hands on a copy of it. However, I just didn't connect with this book. It is beautifully written (but not quite as beautifully as her latest), but the story itself just didn't pull me in, and I spent way longer than usual dragging my feet to finish tha [...]

At the age of 36, what do you have left if you have lost all of your memories beyond your 12th year of life?This is the premise of Krauss's first novel, as she explores the importance of memory to our individual identity, and the lonely freedom that can come after losing them. Her beautiful prose and ability to develop empathetic characters make this book one that resonates long after you close the book.Haunting and gorgeous.
