"Lauren Groff is a writer of rare gifts, and Fates and Furies is an unabashedly ambitious novel that delivers - with comedy, tragedy, well-deployed erudition and unmistakable glimmers of brilliance throughout." - The New York Times Book Review (cover review)
"Elaborate, sensual...a writer whose books are too exotic and unusual to be missed."- The New York Times
" Fates and Furies is a clear-the-ground triumph." -Ron Charles, The Washington Post
From the award-winning, New York Times- bestselling author of The Monsters of Templeton and Arcadia , one of the most anticipated books of the fall: an exhilarating novel about marriage, creativity, art, and perception.
Fates and Furies is a literary masterpiece that defies expectation. A dazzling examination of a marriage, it is also a portrait of creative partnership written by one of the best writers of her generation.
Every story has two sides. Every relationship has two perspectives. And sometimes, it turns out, the key to a great marriage is not its truths but its secrets. At the core of this rich, expansive, layered novel, Lauren Groff presents the story of one such marriage over the course of twenty-four years.
At age twenty-two, Lotto and Mathilde are tall, glamorous, madly in love, and destined for greatness. A decade later, their marriage is still the envy of their friends, but with an electric thrill we understand that things are even more complicated and remarkable than they have seemed. With stunning revelations and multiple threads, and in prose that is vibrantly alive and original, Groff delivers a deeply satisfying novel about love, art, creativity, and power that is unlike anything that has come before it. Profound, surprising, propulsive, and emotionally riveting, it stirs both the mind and the heart.
From the Hardcover edition.
Rezension
'"Lauren Groff is a writer of rare gifts, and Fates and Furies is an unabashedly ambitious novel that delivers - with comedy, tragedy, well-deployed erudition and unmistakable glimmers of brilliance throughout." - The New York Times Book Review (cover review)"One of the pleasures of reading Ms. Groff is her sheer unpredictability: She can inject her narrator's voice at any time, turn a sentence into a small hurricane." - The New York Times"Even from her impossibly high starting point, Lauren Groff just keeps getting better and better. Fates and Furies is a clear-the-ground triumph." -Ron Charles, The Washington Post"Thrillingly good-precise, lyrical, rich, both worldly and epically transfiguring... Groff is an original writer, whose books are daringly nonconformist... The prose is not only beautiful and vigorously alert; it insists on its own heroic registration, and lifts this story of a modern marriage out of the mundane." -James Wood, The New Yorker"Lauren Groff rips at the seams of an outwardly perfect marriage in her enchanting novel Fates and Furies ." - Vanity Fair"[ Fates and Furies ] is a stunning 360-degree view of a complex relationship... There's almost nothing that [Groff is] not interested in and her skill set is breathtaking...It's an incredibly ambitious work, she writes like her hands are on fire." - Richard Russo, NPR's Morning Edition"We can't help but be fascinated by the possibility of what goes on behind closed doors-especially if there's a glam, madly-in-love couple on the other side. Meet Mathilde and Lotto. Groff's novel unfolds in a he said/she said gutting drama that you won't be able to resist." - Marie Claire"Sentence by sentence, this novel, like [Groff's] others, is a thoroughbred. Measured by its narrative tricks, however, it is a Trojan horse. Groff's story of a marriage in which neither partner truly understands the other uses a sophisticated technique to tell its simple story, subverting our expectations with a two-voice counterpoint as meaningful as it is dazzling." -TIME" [This] story is a storm you hope won't blow over: surprising, wild, with pockets of calm that build anticipation for the next squall... Groff scours her characters, laying them bare so questions of likability are moot. If, in the end, everyone is flawed, everyone also attains a kind of nobility." -O, The Oprah Magazine"The book is a master class in best lines...It's that good. That beautiful. Occasionally, that stunning." -NPR.org" The Florida author's third novel is billed as her most ambitious yet, filled with sex, rage and revenge." -The Wall Street Journal"Audacious and gorgeous .... The result is not only deliciously voyeuristic but also wise on the simultaneous comforts and indignities of romantic partnership." - LA Times"[A] rich, tricky novel... Groff is a fantastically vivid writer... it's hard to stop reading." - Entertainment Weekly"A recounting of a 25-year marriage looks way different when told from both sides of the bed." - Cosmopolitan"A playful and riveting read that questions whether love can be true when it's wrapped in falsehoods." -People"Renders majestic even the most familiar moments of everyday life... Groff's writing is striking and revelatory." -USA Today"[Groff has the] ability to write dazzlingly about sexual matters." -Vogue"A delirious, exhilarating and heartbreaking ride through the decades of one fable-like marriage ... The author demands the reader to participate, to engage deeply in order to take in all of the mysteries, flaws and triumphs of this one relationship. Read it, relish it and be sad when the ride is over." - San Francisco Chronicle"Groff breaks the novel form open at the seams... What's different and remarkable about Groff's third novel can be summarized in two little words: the writing. Groff is a prose virtuoso, and in Fates and Furies she offe
