Florida Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

**A BARACK OBAMA BOOK OF THE YEAR****2018 National Book Awards Finalist**In these vigorous stories, Lauren Groff brings her electric storytelling to a world in which storms, snakes and sinkholes lurk at the edge of everyday life, but the greater threats 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 conflicted wife and mother.

The stories in this collection span characters, towns, even centuries, but Florida - its landscape, climate, history and state of mind - becomes the gravitational centre.

With shocking accuracy, Groff pinpoints the connections behind human pleasure and pain, hope and despair, love and fury - the moments that make us alive. 'Restorative fiction for these urgent times.' New York Times'A blistering collection ... lyrical and oblique.' Guardian
