The History of Love

I started reading ``The History of Love,'' by Nicole Krauss. Here is a quote:

``When I came to America I knew hardly anyone, only a second cousin who was a locksmith, so I worked for him. If he had been a shoemaker I would have become a shoemaker; if he had shoveled shit I, too, would have shoveled. But. He was a locksmith." p.4,  The History of Love

PS.  I did not like the book, "The History of Love," ... I could not connect with it even after reading 30 pages and I left it unfinished. I do not recommend it :)
