Today's Featured Book and Contest: THE CONDITIONS OF LOVE by Dale M. Kushner

“I felt an enormous sadness shoot through my chest, and my eyes burned with tears. It frightened me how much I loved him; I wanted to call him back from wherever he was going, but in a rush of knowledge I realized my daddy was a tricky, dangerous man, and I could never trust his love.”

Set in the Midwest in the last years of the ’50s and filled with a cast of beguiling, unforgettable characters, THE CONDITIONS OF LOVE traces, in three parts, the ever-changing landscape of love in the life of young Eunice. In the first part, Eunice must reckon with familial love --- in this case, from a seductively eccentric mother and an idealized, absent father. The second leg of Eunice’s journey to adulthood introduces her to the steadiness of a nurturing love through her relationship with a mysterious stranger named Rose. Finally, in the third act, Eunice is initiated into the world of passionate love.

THE CONDITIONS OF LOVE will appeal to the same audience that embraced Mona Simpson’s acclaimed classic ANYWHERE BUT HERE and Elizabeth Strout’s bestselling AMY AND ISABELLE.
