Made for Love

A Novel

Alissa Nutting

A darkly funny and provocative exploration of the lengths we'll go for love and the extremes we'll go to escape it. Hazel runs from her marriage to a powerful CEO who wants to wirelessly connect their brains, only to end up in a trailer park with her father and his sex doll. As she tries to carve out a new life, her husband is using all his resources to bring her back. A thought-provoking and entertaining look at marriage, family, and what it means to be free.

These days, in certain corners, it’s something akin to a truism that every woman is a warrior, a badass, a queen. It is, for that reason, a profound relief to meet Hazel, the passive, hapless, magnificently abject protagonist of Alissa Nutting’s deranged new comic novel. I loved Hazel immediately, the way I love drunk women who instigate alarmingly personal conversations in bar bathrooms. She is the rare literary heroine in whose company it would be a pleasure to absolutely wreck my life.      source
