Can love coexist with hate? Can family become both paradise and prison? They can and do in Gabriel Tallent’s extraordinarily unsettling and ambitious first novel, “My Absolute Darling.” From its first pages, the book grabs you full throttle. Turtle Alveston, a 14-year-old roiling ball of self-loathing, is living “at the edge of the world,” in the lush woods near the Mendocino coast, along with Martin, her deeply loving, deeply abusive survivalist father. Her mother vanished years ago under mysterious circumstances, and Martin never got over it, and the only other family member close by is Turtle’s ineffective grandfather. Turtle truly believes that Martin loves and needs her.
