An incendiary and stylish debut from a young literary provocateur

Love is a fever dream of a novella about a young sex worker whose life blurs the boundaries between violence and intimacy, objectification and real love. Startlingly intimate and lyrically deft, Maayan Eitan's debut follows Libby as she goes about her work in a nameless Israeli city, riding in cars, seeing clients, meeting and befriending other sex workers and pimps. In prose as crystalline as it is unflinching, Eitan brings us into the mind of her fierce protagonist, as Libby spins a series of fictions to tell herself, and others, in order to negotiate her life under the gaze of men. After long nights of slipping in and out of the beds of strangers, in a shocking moment of violence, she seizes control of her narrative and then labors to construct a life that resembles normalcy. But as she pursues love, it continually eludes her. She discovers that her past nights in cheap hotel rooms eerily resemble the more conventional life she's trying to forge.

A literary sensation in Israel, Maayan Eitan's incendiary debut set off a firestorm about the relationship between truth and fiction, and the experiences of women under the power of men. Compact and gemlike, this is a contemporary allegory of a young woman on the verge.

Über den Autor
Maayan Eitan
Zusammenfassung
A FIRESTARTER: LOVE has the feel of a cult classic. Shocking without being exploitative, provocative yet deeply serious, it's the sort of read that you immediately want to talk to others about.

A BOLD NEW VOICE: LOVE is the debut of a singular literary talent. Maayan Eitan's writing has shades of Virginia Woolf crossed with Mary Gaitskill, hints of Ottessa Moshfegh and Garth Greenwell, while bearing a style that is utterly original and entirely her own.

AN INTERNATIONAL EVENT: LOVE was a major event in Israel, generating heated debates, and leading the country's literary elite to celebrate Eitan as one of their great new writers. A flurry of translations will appear across the globe in 2022 and 2023.
