New York Times best seller Lauren Groff returns with a new book as bold and consuming as her novel Fates and Furies.
Lauren Groff is “a writer of rare gifts”*, and Florida – her first new book since her “clear the ground triumph”* Fates and Furies – is an electrifying, expanding listen.
Over a decade ago, Groff moved to her adopted home state of Florida. 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. 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.
Groff’s evocative storytelling and knife-sharp intelligence first transport the listener, then jolt 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, Groff pinpoints the moments and decisions and connections behind human pleasure and pain, hope and despair, love and fury – the moments that make us alive. Vigorous, startling, precise, and moving, Florida is a magnifice

I'm a big Groff fan and have been since I was captivated by her lyrical, rich prose when reading Fates & Furies. I saw her speak on her book tour for Florida, and she mentioned that she felt it was her responsibility to write something very much in and of this world. And through this series, we see characters grapple with climate change, politics, gentrification, sexual violence, but it is often just a piece of the narrative. She's subtle in writing stories about the people, but illuminating the context in which they live while exploring their lives. I can be particular about what types of books I prefer to read vs. listen to, but I think the shorter vignette style works well in audio form and there is something intimate about hearing it in Groff's voice. But the prose is superb, so I've also picked up a physical copy so I can read and appreciate the particularly good bits of writing.
