Florida by Lauren Groff

review Florida by Lauren Groff 100 Ch as a place of residence Groff transports the reader then jolts us alert with a crackle of wit a wave of sadness a flash of cruelty as she writes about loneliness rage family and the passag. Here s the thing I really do love Groff s writing These short stories are no exception she is a master craftsman She paints so well with her words and phrasing It s just thatI don t do so well with dark and all eleven of these stories are pretty dark I don t think Lauren Groff likes Florida very muchHere s what I took away from this collection Florida is mold feral cats snakes bugs humidity rot spanish moss vines gators sinkholes homelessness tent cities termites mosuitos hurricanes lizards panthers a damp and dense tangle bleaching sun dread and heatMotherhood is something to be deeply conflicted about When in doubt drink heavilyEveryone is lonely loneliness is everwhere and ghosts surround you When lonely drink heavilyMen are predatory scum rapists abusive devious self involved OR tender and kind fathershusbands OR any combination of the above yet another thing to be deeply conflicted aboutGlobal warming climate change is something to obsess about on a daily basis These are all really well articulated stories but they are also disturbingly bleak I was relieved to be done with the bookA 4 for the writing a 3 for how much I liked it If Goodreads allowed it I would give this a 35 but rounding down to a 3 because I just didn t really like it I m spending two weeks in Florida in October That gives me just over 3 months to shake this off

review Florida by Lauren Groff 100 E of time With shocking accuracy and effect she pinpoints the moments and decisions and connections behind human pleasure and pain hope and despair love and fury the moments that make us aliv. Any book called Florida needs to be infused by a thorough sense of place and Lauren Groff does just that I have been a fan since LOVING Fates and Furies a few years back and have been meaning to pick up of her books and this very strong collection of short stories has cemented her place in my heartWhile not every story is set in Florida Groff s protagonists all have a connection to that place a connection they sometimes strain against and sometimes welcome Her protagonists are women depressed and difficult and wonderfully flawed women often mothers with a difficult and believable relationship to motherhood I loved the way these women are allowed to be difficult while Groff shines an unflinching spotlight on them and their flaws and the way they are suffocating in their own skin I adore that theycan be unpleasant while ultimately staying sympathetic I do wish this unpleasantness did not always also show itself in a disdain for their own and other bodies Once I noticed that I could not unsee it I would have liked there to be variety in their deepest flaws because as it is the fixation on often overweight bodies feels unkind and unnecessaryLauren Groff is in perfect command of her language her sentences are sharp in the way that I like them to be in realistic short fiction comparisons to Roxane Gay came to mind here and that is obviously one of the highest compliments I can give a short story writer The stories are meticulously structured and surprising while her perfect tone is recognizable in all of themNow excuse me while I buy everything else she has ever writtenI received an arc of this book courtesy of NetGalley and Random House UK Cornerstone in exchange for an honest review

A collection of eleven short stories set mostly in the titular state Florida examines the inner lives of young women and mothers afflicted by malaise alcoholism and occasionally despair Abusive men neglected children unbearable storms and the southern wilderness recur throughout the collection the pieces gathered here feel like variations on the same set of themes Groff writes lush sentences full of palpable and unsettling images and her stories move at a measured pace Sometimes the stories felt scattered in focus and occasionally I wished they would have ended on definitive notes Favorite stories included Ghost and Empties Above and Below and Yport
