BY THE NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF BELOVEDMay, Christine, Heed, Junior, Vida - even L - all are women obsessed with Bill Cosey.
He shapes their yearnings for a father, husband, lover, guardian, and friend.
This audacious vision from a master storyteller on the nature of love - its appetite, its sublime possession, and its consuming dread - is rich in characters and dramatic events, and in its profound sensitivity to just how alive the past can be.
Sensual, elegiac and unforgettable, Love ultimately comes full circle to that indelible, overwhelming first love that marks us forever. Winner of the PEN/Saul Bellow award for achievement in American fiction

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...
