Lauren Groff is an American novelist, short story writer and New York Times bestselling author. Her latest book, Fates and Furies - billed as a literary Gone Girl -, is a compelling dive into the domestic.
Lotto and Mathilde met and married young and after twenty-four years have what people might consider a successful marriage. With rich and layered prose Fates and Furies tells their story, first Lotto's then Mathilde's, revealing the truths and secrets and mutual projections that sustain their relationship. While two human lives may unfold in conjugal proximity it is nonetheless a possibility that they inhabit completely different worlds. This promises to be a furious read.
