The Conditions of Love

A novel by Dale Kushner

conditions-of-love“In The Conditions of Love Dale Kushner portrays with wonderful empathy a young girl’s journey towards adulthood. Kushner has an amazing sense of character and not only her heroine, the fearless Eunice, but everyone that Eunice encounters comes vividly to life as she struggles first to accommodate herself to her mother’s tumultuous feelings and then to make her own way in the world.  An immaculately written, enthralling and passionate debut.”
— Margot Livesey, author of The Flight of Gemma Hardy and Eva Moves The Furniture

“Can this wise, funny, quirky, poignant novel really be Dale Kushner’s debut? She got everything just right—characters who you will never forget and a palpable yearning for love that you will feel in your gut. Bravo!”
— Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle and The Red Thread

“A fine exploration of growing up, weathering heartbreak and picking oneself up over and over.”
Kirkus Reviews

“This is poet Kushner’s first novel, and her roots show; passages describing even the bleakest midwestern landscapes are artfully drawn. A coming-of-age story that wonderfully combines literary style with heartbreaking plot twists and still manages to be uplifting”
— Booklist
