內容簡介


《完美婚姻》作者蘿倫.葛洛芙又一精彩之作! 

某學生突然失去了上大學的基金,變成了無家可歸的流浪漢、獨自旅行的旅行家,被迫和一個聞起來酒臭味的小偷一起等待度過暴風雨、一場颶風即將到來,但只有這個陷入幻象之中的女人可以感受到,湖水像是起了雞皮疙瘩、房子像是被一個深呼吸吸入一般…

在這本故事集,蘿倫.葛洛芙再次展現其說故事的功力,帶讀者進入一個充滿智慧、悲傷、殘酷、孤獨、憤怒的世界中,在這裡風暴、蛇、汙水坑遍布生活的邊緣,但真正的威脅,是人類的心理,她的敘述之精確,讓人讀起來像是觸了電般無法自拔。

葛洛芙因《完美婚姻》受到注目,甚至連美國前總統歐巴馬都在推特上稱在這位作家,今年以美國佛羅里達為中心,帶著這本短篇故事集回歸文壇,勢必將再次帶起一波熱烈的討論。


New York Times bestseller Lauren Groff returns with an electric collection of stories as propulsive and consuming as her novel Fates and Furies.

Lauren Groff is one of the most important authors writing today, and Florida -- her first new book since her "clear the ground triumph"* Fates and Furies -- is an electrifying, expanding read.

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.

In "The Midnight Zone," 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. "Above and Below" follows a young homeless woman as she moves from one Florida beach town to another, finding increasingly precarious ways to survive. And "Yport" brilliantly explores the alternating fulfillment and anxiety of modern marriage and motherhood, all the more apparent when removed from routine American life.

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, Florida is a magnificent achievement.
