A stunning novel of great compassion and insight, from the author of the Stella Prize-shortlisted An Isolated Incident.

'Bold, furious, unapologetic and deeply insightful.' Sofie Laguna, author of Infinite Splendours

'A stunning, immersive novel that will change the conversation about class and about what possessions mean. It's important and funny and sad and beautiful and I absolutely adored it.' Kathryn Heyman, author of Storm and Grace and Fury

'One of the most big-hearted novels I've ever read. Each person fully formed, each scene and new catastrophe rooted in truth.' Bri Lee, author of Eggshell Skull

Nic is a forty-five-year-old trivia buff, amateur nail artist and fairy godmother to the neighbourhood's stray cats. She's also the owner of a decade's worth of daily newspapers, enough clothes and shoes to fill Big W three times over and a pen collection which, if laid end-to-end, would probably circle her house twice.

The person she's closest to in the world is her beloved niece Lena, who she meets for lunch every Sunday. One day Nic fails to show up. When Lena travels to her aunt's house to see if Nic's all right, she gets the shock of her life, and sets in train a series of events that will prove cataclysmic for them both.

By the acclaimed author of An Isolated Incident, Love Objects is a clear-eyed, heart-wrenching and deeply compassionate novel about love and family, betrayal and forgiveness, and the things we do to fill our empty spaces.
