"The Story of Forgetting manages to feel big and small in perfect proportion, at once intimate and universal. Mr. Block has made something very beautiful out of something very ugly: a disease that steals people’s lives from them... It’s a book about love."
—The New York Observer
"Blisteringly good... The redemptive qualities of storytelling are gloriously displayed in this astonishing first novel."
—Financial Times, UK
"[An] astounding debut... compulsive and transporting."
—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"A fresh, beguiling novel... as true to the anguish of [its] questions as it is ablaze with love and vitality."
—The New York Times
