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. At once heartrending and captivating, The Love Object is an unforgettable exploration of isolation and romantic obsession.
