May, Christine, Heed, Junior, Vida - even L - all are women obsessed by Bill Cosey.
He shapes their yearnings for a father, husband, lover, guardian, and friend.
This audacious vision from a master storyteller of the nature of love - its appetite, its sublime possession, and its dread - is rich in characters and dramatic events, and in its profound understanding of how alive the past can be.
Sensual, elegiac and unforgettable, Love reflects the different facets of love, shifting from desire and lust and ultimately comes full circle to that indelible, overwhelming first love that marks us forever.

Review by evaberry
Great depth and intelligence; really portrays the complexity of characters well and shows how differently people understand and misunderstand each other, and how small decisions we make can change the course of a whole life. I just can't help thinking, though, that the book might have been even richer if it had been a little more chronological and forgiving of its readers...
