Lauren Groff is the author of two short story collections and three novels, including finalist for the National Book Award Fates and Furies. As summarized by the publisher, Groff’s newest collection, Florida, brings the reader into a physical world that is at once domestic and wild--a place where the hazards of the natural world lie waiting to pounce, yet the greatest threats and mysteries are still of an emotional, psychological nature. A family retreat can be derailed by a prowling panther, or by a sexual secret. Among those navigating this place are a resourceful pair of abandoned sisters; a lonely boy, grown up; a restless, childless couple, a searching, homeless woman; and an unforgettable, recurring character--a steely and conflicted wife and mother.

Groff is a master of characterization, and in Florida, there is no stronger or more prominent character than the setting itself. Readers are transported to this wild, magical, and often troubling place as Florida’s landscape, climate, residents, and history remain palpable throughout every story.
