Reviews

Florida is a magnificent collection, executed with tremendous depth and precision, unsettling in the best possible way. Lauren Groff is a virtuoso. -- Emily St John Mandel, author of Station Eleven
Don't tell yourself you don't like short stories, because these are not to be missed. The book is deep and dark and resonant. Every story plays in some way on the others and in the end the total is worth even more than the sum of its beautiful parts. -- Ann Patchett
It's beautiful. It's giving me rich, grand nightmares. -- Eva Wiseman * Observer *
Florida feels innovative and terribly relevant. Any one of its stories is a bracing read; together they form a masterpiece. * Stylist *
This is what she shows in story after story: a heroic pushback against the way we live now, against waste, against the artificial environments in which we find ourselves maintained by corporations, but equally against the pressures on women to be flawless, effortlessly excellent mothers, wives, sisters, lovers, friends, within this dire state of affairs ... Groff's lyrical and oblique stories catch these women in the midst of becoming aware of their complicity in perpetuating these narratives - to which their response is to walk, flee, or conversely refuse to budge, as in the dazzlingly apocalyptic 'Eyewall' ... The hot, humid Floridian atmosphere hangs over all the stories ... Every woman, every snake, is fighting back against the laws of nature, and the human-made Eden that threatens to imprison, or end, them all. * Guardian *
