Fates and Furies, Lauren Groff

Groff writes in an incredibly original style and details a 20+-year marriage in its rawest, most honest form. While it is a love story in many ways, Groff pulls the curtain on the inevitable secrets held between a husband and wife in a way that makes it so much more than a love story, but rather the individual stories of two people that become inextricably intertwined.

A little slow at first, but well worth the read.

  1. Succinct review! I’ve been interested in checking out more of the author’s books since having finished her recent story collection, Florida, and the novel’s wide scope sounds intriguing.
