Bookseller Recommendation

Florida

“This collection of stories, read by the author, is impeccable. Lauren Groff weaves her way through many lives and many circumstances in a way that makes everyday life experiences climactic yet accessible. The sound, timber and cadence of her voice as she speaks her own words to the listener is spellbinding. If you are looking for an intimate author/reader experience, download this and put on your headphones! You won't be disappointed.”

The bold new book from the celebrated New York Times-bestselling author of Fates and Furies.

"Lauren Groff is a writer of rare gifts." --The New York Times Book Review

In her vigorous and moving new book, Lauren Groff brings her electric storytelling and intelligence to a world in which storms, snakes, and sinkholes lurk at the edge of everyday life, but the greater threats and mysteries are of a human, emotional, and psychological nature. Among those navigating it all are a resourceful pair of abandoned sisters; a lonely boy, grown up; a restless, childless couple, a searching, homeless woman; and an unforgettable, recurring character - a steely and conflicted wife and mother.

The stories in this collection span characters, towns, decades, even centuries, but Florida--its landscape, climate, history, and state of mind--becomes its gravitational center: an energy, a mood, as much as a place of residence. Groff transports the reader, then jolts us alert with a crackle of wit, a wave of sadness, a flash of cruelty, as she writes about loneliness, rage, family, and the passage of time. With shocking accuracy and effect, she pinpoints the moments and decisions and connections behind human pleasure and pain, hope and despair, love and fury--the moments that make us alive. Startling, precise, and affecting, Florida is a magnificent achievement.
