“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 TempletonArcadia, and Florida, 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.

Part 2 is the jaw dropper

By the end of the first part of this book, I was not quite getting how there could be a part two, but that is where it surprised me again and again. By the end, you realize the brilliance, and that the title is quite apt!

Weirdest book I’ve ever heard.

I am so lost. Talking about mermaids, women’s breasts and crotches, suddenly a random man who is in a play. And no one talks the way these words were written, all broken up - no complete sentences. Driving me crazy. I can’t finish this book. I am confused by all the praise this book is receiving.

I hate it's over...

I absolutely loved this book - especially since it was told by both the husband and wife perspective. My husband is actually listening to it now. Buy it - you won't be disappointed!!!
