‘Edna O’Brien writes the most beautiful, aching stories of any writer, anywhere.’ Alice Munro
Spanning five decades of writing, and winning the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award, The Love Object collects the most luminous stories by Edna O’Brien that have bewitched generation after generation. Here you will find tales of families, feuds, enchantment, despair, and the manifold bonds of love.
There are stories about the tension between country and city life, the instinct towards escape and nostalgia for home; always crafted in shimmering prose.
