Delicate Edible Birds

And Other Stories

(1)
FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF FATES AND FURIES
Lauren Groff's critically acclaimed The Monsters of Templeton was shortlisted for the Orange Broadband Award for New Writers 2008, and critics hailed her as an enormous talent and a writer to watch. In Delicate Edible Birds , she fulfils that promise.
Delicate Edible Birds includes nine stories of vastly different styles and structures. 'L. De Bard and Aliette' recreates the tale of Abelard and Heloise in New York during the 1918 flu epidemic; 'Lucky Chow Fun' returns to Templeton, the setting of Groff's debut novel, for a contemporary account of what happens to outsiders in a small, insular town; the title story of Delicate Edible Birds is a harrowing, powerfully moving drama about a group of war correspondents, a lone woman among them, who fall prey to a frightening man in the French countryside while fleeing the Nazis.
With a dazzling array of voices and settings, Delicate Edible Birds will cement Lauren Groff's reputation as one of the foremost talents of her generation.
Rezension
"...begins with a story set in the sort of mythical small town of plenty that Krasikov's characters might dream of...Here Groff peers behind the white picket fence to reveal a nastier underside; other stories take in World War II, and transpose the tale of Heloise And Abelard to New York in 1918." Metro
Portrait

Zitat
"...begins with a story set in the sort of mythical small town of plenty that Krasikov's characters might dream of...Here Groff peers behind the white picket fence to reveal a nastier underside; other stories take in World War II, and transpose the tale of Heloise And Abelard to New York in 1918." Metro "Groff's first collection of stories, Delicate Edible Birds, demonstrates the often surprising ways that quality can bear fruit. Bringing together nine stories, it moves almost effortlessly through different locales, from Templeton to Argentina, post-first world war New York to contemporary America ... in her strongest writing, Groff echoes the magic of her gothic forebears" Financial Times "Delicate Edible Birds is wonderfully imaginative, subtle and precise, brimming over with brave and fascinating women... A dazzling collection to make all those readers who are wary of short stories think again." New Books

von Katharina Hosse aus Dorsten am 14.03.2011

Lauren Groff writes some of the most stunning prose I have read in a long time. I took my time with this book, drawing each hauntingly beautiful story out, savoring every perfect word.
