From one of our most exciting and provocative young writers, a poignant, riotously funny story of how far some will go for love--and how far some will go to escape it.

Hazel has just moved into a trailer park of senior citizens, with her father and Diane--his extremely lifelike sex doll--as her roommates. Life with Hazel's father is strained at best, but her only alternative seems even bleaker. She's just run out on her marriage to Byron Gogol, CEO and founder of Gogol Industries, a monolithic corporation hell-bent on making its products and technologies indispensable in daily life. For over a decade, Hazel put up with being veritably quarantined by Byron in the family compound, her every movement and vital sign tracked. But when he demands to wirelessly connect the two of them via brain chips in a first-ever human "mind-meld," Hazel decides what was once merely irritating has become unbearable. The world she escapes into is a far cry from the dry and clinical bubble she's been living in, a world populated with a whole host of deviant oddballs.

As Hazel tries to carve out a new life for herself in this uncharted territory, Byron is using the most sophisticated tools at his disposal to find her and bring her home. His threats become more and more sinister, and Hazel is forced to take drastic measures in order to find a home of her own and free herself from Byron's virtual clutches once and for all. Perceptive and compulsively readable, Made for Love is at once an absurd, raunchy comedy and a dazzling, profound meditation marriage, monogamy, and family.

This was extremely weird (I loved it) and I will never think about dolphins the same way again.

I really enjoyed Tampa, which was recommended by a friend. So when I saw a new Nutting on order, I waited excitedly. And isn't the cover art something? Like candy! I read about 60% of it hoping to at least glean something about humanity, or pick up on some commentary about man and machine or man and sex robot. But no. The book didn't work for me, but I think Nutting has huge potential and will try her next book the hopes that this was just a case of no love connection.
