FATES AND FURIES
By Lauren Groff
Riverhead, September 15, 2015
A dazzling examination of a marriage, Fates and Furies is also a portrait of creative partnership written by one of the best writers of her generation.
“In a swirling miasma of language, plot, and Greek mythology, Groff weaves a fierce and gripping tale of true love gone asunder...Groff's prose is variously dewy, defiant, salacious, and bleak—a hurricane of words thrown together on every page. Yet so much of the power in this book lies in what's unspoken...An intoxicating elixir."
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"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
