The Love Object
[stories]eBook - 2012
In this collection of eight stories, Edna O'Brien writes lyrically and passionately about women's lives. In "Irish Revel," young Mary yearns for the promise of a sweetheart to hold on to, as a hard life stretches out before her. In "The Rug," a woman becomes consumed with her search for the sender of a mysterious gift. And in the title story, "The Love Object," a successful television announcer struggles for emotional fulfillment through an affair with a married man. In each story, the objects of each woman's affections vary, but all are masterfully bound together by their love and longing.
