Forgive Me Summary

Nearly everything known about Zvi Litvinoff, the author of The History of Love, comes from the introduction his wife, Rosa, wrote when the book was reissued after his death. She met Zvi in Valparaiso in 1951, at a local cafe. After several months of watching him, Rosa began talking with him and the two fell in love. Two months later, Zvi began to read parts of The History of Love to her. The book was written in Yiddish, and with Rosa's help Zvi would translate it into Spanish. The original manuscript was lost when their home was flooded. A publisher in Santiago printed 2,000 copies.
