Love Object

 

What happens when the person who loves you most can’t take care of herself? Sally Cooper asks that question in her first novel, Love Object, the story of a family’s implosion in the aftermath of the mental collapse of the mother at its centre. When Mercy Brewer is 12 and her brother, Nicky, 11, their mother is hospitalized and their bawdy grandmother steps in to take care of them and their father. Love Object is the story of how two teenagers make sense of the loss of their mother while coming to terms with their own emergent sexuality and the secret violence at their family’s core.
