The History of Love

I am in the midst of reading a truly remarkably well written book, The History of Love, by Nicole Krauss.

It was my wife who pointed out to me with annoyance that one of the chapters has the Tetragrammaton printed inside on several pages. What this means is that this book will have to be handled carefully in the house, not taken into the bathroom, not be thrown away, etc...

While this is a minor annoyance, it would have been less irksome had the writer not made it a point to explain in the book that though not religious herself, she understood the implications of writing the Tetragrammaton on objects.
