A decade later, their marriage is still the envy of their friends, but with an electric thrill we understand that things are even more complicated and remarkable than they have seemed. With stunning revelations and multiple threads, and in prose that is vibrantly alive and original, Groff delivers a deeply satisfying novel about love, art, creativity, and power that is unlike anything that has come before it. Profound, surprising, propulsive, and emotionally riveting, it stirs both the mind and the heart.

2 Florida

Author : Lauren Groff
Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books  Literary  Short Stories 
Price :  $13.99
Release Date :  2018-06-05
Description :  <b><i>New York Times</i> bestseller Lauren Groff returns with an electric collection of stories as propulsive and consuming as her novel <i>Fates and Furies</i>.<br /></b><br />Lauren Groff is one of the most important authors writing today, and <i>Florida</i> -- her first new book since her "clear the ground triumph"* <i>Fates and Furies</i> -- is an electrifying, expanding read. <br /><br />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. <br /><br />In "<i>The Midnight Zone</i>," a woman finds herself injured and isolated in a confined space with her children, danger literally prowling outside the door, and must confront what it is she is really afraid of. "<i>Above and Below</i>" follows a young homeless woman as she moves from one Florida beach town to another, finding increasingly precarious ways to survive. And "<i>Yport</i>" brilliantly explores the alternating fulfillment and anxiety of modern marriage and motherhood, all the more apparent when removed from routine American life. <br /><br />Groff's evocative storytelling and knife-sharp intelligence first transport the reader, 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, <i>Florida</i> is a magnificent achievement.<br /><br />(*<i>Washington Post</i>)

Description :  <b><i><b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i></b></i><b>BESTSELLER -- the debut novel by the acclaimed author of <i>Fates and Furies</i>.</b><br /><br /></b><i>"The day I returned to Templeton steeped in disgrace, the fifty-foot corpse of a monster surfaced in Lake Glimmerglass."</i><br /><br />So begins <i>The Monsters of Templeton</i>, a novel spanning two centuries: part contemporary story of a girl's search for her father; part historical novel; and part ghost story. In the wake of a disastrous love affair with her older, married archaeology professor at Stanford, brilliant Wilhelmina Cooper arrives back at the doorstep of her hippie mother-turned-born-again-Christian's house in Templeton, NY, a storybook town her ancestors founded that sits on the shores of Lake Glimmerglass. Upon her arrival, a prehistoric monster surfaces in the lake bringing a feeding frenzy to the quiet town, and Willie learns she has a mystery father, one her mother kept secret Willie's entire life.<br /><br />The beautiful, broody Willie is told that the key to her biological father's identity lies somewhere in her family's history, so she buries herself in the research of her twisted family tree and finds more than she bargained for as a chorus of voices from the town's past--some sinister, all fascinating--rise up around her to tell their side of the story. In the end, dark secrets come to light, past and present day are blurred, and old mysteries are finally put to rest.<br /><i><br />The Monsters of Templeton</i> is a fresh, virtuoso performance that has placed Lauren Groff among the best writers of today.

Description :  NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER<br /><br />"Timeless and vast... The raw beauty of Ms. Groff's prose is one of the best things about <i>Arcadia</i>. But it is by no means this book's only kind of splendor."<b>---Janet Maslin, <i>The New York Times</i></b><br /><br />"Even the most incidental details vibrate with life <i>Arcadia</i> wends a harrowing path back to a fragile, lovely place you can believe in."<b>---Ron Charles, <i>The Washington Post</i></b><br /><br />In the fields of western New York State in the 1970s, a few dozen idealists set out to live off the land, founding a commune centered on the grounds of a decaying mansion called Arcadia House. <i>Arcadia</i> follows this romantic utopian dream from its hopeful start through its heyday. Arcadia's inhabitants include Handy, the charismatic leader; his wife, Astrid, a midwife; Abe, a master carpenter; Hannah, a baker and historian; and Abe and Hannah's only child, Bit. While Arcadia rises and falls, Bit, too, ages and changes. He falls in love with Helle, Handy's lovely, troubled daughter. And eventually he must face the world beyond Arcadia. <br /><br />In <i>Arcadia</i>, Groff displays her literary gifts to stunning effect.<br /><br />"Fascinating."-<b>--<i>People</i> (****)</b><br /><br />"It's not possible to write any better without showing off."<b>---Richard Russo, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel <i>Empire Falls</i></b><br /><br />"Dazzling."<b>---<i>Vogue</i></b>

5 Delicate Edible Birds

Author : Lauren Groff
Genre :  Short Stories  Books  Fiction & Literature 
Price :  $9.99
Release Date :  2009-01-27
Description :  <b>From Lauren Groff, author of the critically acclaimed and bestselling novel <i>Fates and Furies</i>, comes <i>Delicate Edible Birds</i>, one of the most striking short fiction debuts in years. Here are nine stories of astonishing insight and variety, each revealing a resonant drama within the life of a twentieth-century American woman.</b><br /><br />In "Sir Fleeting," a Midwestern farm girl on her honeymoon in Argentina falls into lifelong lust for a French playboy. In "Blythe," an attorney who has become a stay-at-home mother takes a night class in poetry and meets another full-time mother, one whose charismatic brilliance changes everything. In "The Wife of the Dictator," that eponymous wife ("brought back . . . from [the dictator's] last visit to America") grows more desperately, menacingly isolated every day. In "Delicate Edible Birds," a group of war correspondents-a lone, high-spirited woman among them-falls sudden prey to a brutal farmer while fleeing Nazis in the French countryside. In "Lucky Chow Fun," Groff returns us to Templeton, the setting of her first book, for revelations about the darkness within even that idyllic small town.<br /><br /> In some of these stories, enormous changes happen in an instant. In others, transformations occur across a lifetime--or several lifetimes.<br /><br /> Throughout the collection, Groff displays particular and vivid preoccupations. Crime is a motif--sex crimes, a possible murder, crimes of the heart. Love troubles recur; they're in every story--love in alcoholism, in adultery, in a flood, even in the great flu epidemic of 1918. Some of the love has depths, which are understood too late; some of the love is shallow, and also understood too late. And mastery is a theme--Groff's women swim and baton twirl, become poets, or try and try again to achieve the inner strength to exercise personal freedom.<br /><br /> Overall, these stories announce a notable new literary master. Dazzlingly original and confident, Delicate Edible Birds further solidifies Groff's reputation as one of the foremost talents of her generation.

7 The Woman Who Borrowed Memories

Author : Tove Jansson, Lauren Groff, Thomas Teal & Silvester Mazzarella
Genre :  Short Stories  Books  Fiction & Literature  Literary 
Price :  $10.99
Release Date :  2014-10-21
Description :  An NYRB Classics Original<br /> &#xa0;<br /> Tove Jansson was a master of brevity, unfolding worlds at a touch. Her art flourished in small settings, as can be seen in her bestselling novel <i>The Summer Book</i> and in her internationally celebrated cartoon strips and books about the Moomins. It is only natural, then, that throughout her life she turned again and again to the short story. <i>The Woman Who Borrowed Memories</i> is the first extensive selection of Jansson’s stories to appear in English. <br /><br />Many of the stories collected here are pure Jansson, touching on island solitude and the dangerous pull of the artistic impulse: in “The Squirrel” the equanimity of the only inhabitant of a remote island is thrown by a visitor, in “The Summer Child” an unlovable boy is marooned along with his lively host family, in “The Cartoonist” an artist takes over a comic strip that has run for decades, and in “The Doll’s House” a man’s hobby threatens to overwhelm his life. Others explore unexpected territory: “Shopping” has a post-apocalyptic setting, “The Locomotive” centers on a railway-obsessed loner with murderous fantasies, and “The Woman Who Borrowed Memories” presents a case of disturbing transference. Unsentimental, yet always humane, Jansson’s stories complement and enlarge our understanding of a singular figure in world literature.

Description :  Aos 22 anos, Lotto e Mathilde são jovens, perdidamente apaixonados e destinados ao sucesso. Eles se conhecem nos últimos meses da faculdade e antes da formatura já estão casados. Seguem-se anos difíceis, mas românticos: reuniões com amigos no apartamento em Manhattan; uma carreira que ainda não paga as contas; uma casa onde só cabem felicidade e sexo bom. Uma década depois, o caminho tornou-se mais sólido. Ele é um dramaturgo famoso e ela se dedica integralmente ao sucesso do marido. A vida dos dois é invejada como a verdadeira definição de parceria bem-sucedida.<br /> Porém, nem tudo é o que parece; toda história tem dois lados, e em um casamento essa máxima se faz ainda mais verdadeira. Se em “Destinos” somos seduzidos pela imagem do casal perfeito, em “Fúrias” a tempestuosa raiva de Mathilde se revela fervendo sob a superfície. Em uma reviravolta emocionalmente complexa, o que começou como uma ode a uma união extraordinária se torna muito mais.<br /> Com profundidade e um emaranhado de tramas, a prosa vibrante e original de Destinos e fúrias comove, provoca e surpreende. Um romance sobre os muitos casamentos possíveis entre o amor, a arte e o poder e sobre os diferentes pontos de vista pelos quais essas combinações podem ser enxergadas.

Description :  Per alcuni la vita è sogno. Lotto e Mathilde,il ragazzo d’oro e la principessa di ghiaccio, si conoscono alla fine dell’università e si sposano subito: giovani, bellissimi e innamorati, si avviano verso un destino di felicità. Lotto depone senza troppo dolore le ambizioni da attore per diventare celebre come autore teatrale, e Mathilde si rivela la moglie ideale, la musa silenziosa: lui ama le luci della ribalta e lei sceglie il riparo delle quinte, lui è fiducioso e aperto verso le persone e il futuro, lei è più oscura e sfuggente. Ventiquattro anni di matrimonio per una coppia perfetta, quella che vedono - o credono di vedere - tutti da fuori: ma basta cambiare punto di vista e la maschera cade. Il fato cala senza pietà; e Mathilde è la furia che libera un carico di rivelazioni. <br /><br />Con la sua scrittura intensa e luminosa Lauren Groff è riuscita a dare grande respiro narrativo a quella che si può leggere come una pièce teatrale, una tragedia animata da due personaggi folgoranti: perché ogni storia ha due facce, e la chiave di un matrimonio non è la verità, ma il segreto.
