Florida

by Lauren Groff

**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
