The universally-acclaimed return of the New York Times bestselling author of Fates and Furies. In Lauren Groff’s Florida; the hot sun shines; but a wild darkness lurks. Florida is a "superlative" book (Boston Globe); "gorgeously weird and limber" (New Yorker); "frequently funny" (San Francisco Chronicle); "brooding; inventive and often moving" (NPR Fresh Air) -- as Groff is recognized as "Florida's unofficial poet laureate; as Joan Didion was for California." (Washington Post) "Groff's gifts as a writer just keep soaring higher and higher.” – NPR’s Fresh Air In her thrilling new book; Lauren Groff brings the reader into a physical world that is at once domestic and wild—a place where the hazards of the natural world lie waiting to pounce; yet the greatest threats and mysteries are still of an emotional; psychological nature. A family retreat can be derailed by a prowling panther; or by a sexual secret. Among those navigating this place 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.
