This is the story of a man who loses all his memory beyond the age of 12. Much of the novel takes place in the desert, where the man participates in a research experiment where other people's memories are grafted to his. I think the blank slate of lost memory fits nicely with this spare treatment. This is Nicole Krauss's first novel. She is the author of The History of Love.
