Florida (Short Stories) Overview

Lauren Groff's Florida is a collection of literary short stories that revolves around the titular setting and features characters struggling with dread and dissatisfaction. One woman paces her neighborhood at night, exorcising her demons. Another woman battens down the hatches of her home to ride out a hurricane in the company of three ghosts and a third takes her sons to France on an increasingly ill-fated trip to research the life of French writer Guy de Maupassant. The collection explores themes related to death and the apocalypse, the self as an inescapable prison, and nature as a destructive force.
