Florida by Lauren Groff
A finalist for the 2018 National Book Award, from the New York Times bestselling author of Fates and Furies—in Lauren Groff’s Florida, the hot sun shines, but a wild darkness lurks. Florida is a “superlative” book (Boston Globe), “gorgeously weird and limber” (New Yorker), “frequently funny” (San Francisco Chronicle), “brooding, inventive and often moving” (NPR Fresh Air) — as Groff is recognized as “Florida’s unofficial poet laureate, as Joan Didion was for California.” (Washington Post).
