This Must be the Place
A short story collection arrives with much fanfare from Lauren Groff. In Florida, her follow-up to Fates and Furies (Barack Obama’s favourite book from 2015), Groff brings her electric storytelling and intelligence to a world in which storms, snakes and sinkholes lurk at the edge of everyday life, but the greater threats and mysteries are of a human, emotional nature. She talks with Lennie Goodings about her magnificent stories, which span landscape, climate, history and state of mind.
