Critical Praise

"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
