“This collection of short stories take place in Florida, but this is no Disney World! Dog snatching alligators, hurricanes and lurking panthers-just a few of the dangers in this well crafted book. I especially enjoyed "At the Round Earth's Imagined Corners"”Teresa, Bookmarks
“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.”Casey, Innisfree Bookshop
“After wowing readers (former President Barack Obama included) with 2015’s Fates and Furies, Lauren Groff returns with a collection of stories just as wise and meticulously constructed. Within the sun-kissed, palmetto-strewn swampland of Groff’s Florida, we encounter a pair of abandoned sisters, anxious mothers, and a woman being pushed to the edge. Looking inward and out, Groff examines the lives of her characters with a surveyor’s eye, capturing the sense of dread and desire that pervades their existence. Floridais an exploration of time and place, both sensual and terrifying, and seems to me both timely and timeless.”Uriel Perez, BookPeople
