This book was the winner of the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award. Spanning five decades of writing, The Love Object features stories from many of Edna O'Brien's collections; stories that have bewitched generation after generation. Here you will find tales of families, feuds, enchantment, disenchantment 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; and always in shimmering prose.
