The Object: a love story is the tale of Sandra Briar’s life, as told by nearly fifty different characters.
Wherever she travels in the world – a journey from teenage runaway to promising artist, from disaster victim to depression survivor, from defiant daughter to reflective grandmother – we always know her as the object of someone else’s story.
Whether viewing her as an object of derision or an object of desire, each narrator has a role in revealing Sandra Briar.
These stories overlap to become the patchwork quilt that is her portrait. Neither her mother’s perspective, or her rival’s point-of-view, or her own voice, or even the tale created by some writer, possess the whole truth.
