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.
"Enough betrayal, vengeance and sex to read like one of the Greek tragedies"
"Rich, lyrical and rewarding."
"A lyrical and, at times, astonishingly beautiful account of how little it is possible to know about those closest to us."
"Addictive to read ... Groff has drawn a woman so complex it seems that with every chapter a new layer is revealed, each as deliciously intriguing as the next … The result is a compelling portrait of an unconventional marriage across two decades."
"[A] stunning achievement. The plotting is elegant, intricate and assured . . . it will give you much to savour."
"Absorbing and beautifully written, this is a riveting study of love, power and creativity."
"A truly special novel ... if you haven't read her before, I'm delighted to take the credit for introducing you to one of your new favourite authors."
"A searing exploration of how far a person will go for love, loyalty and revenge."
"Rare and impressive… Groff has created a novel of extraordinary and genuine complexity…The word “ambitious” is often used as code for “overly ambitious”, a signal that an author’s execution has fallen short. No such hidden message here. 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."
"A book to submit to and be knocked out by."
Fall in love in New York through the eyes of a husband and wife.
'One bottle cost a year of retirement, or an hour squinting down the barrel of a hurricane.' Enjoy a short story entitled Eyewall from Florida, the absorbing new book from Fates and Furies author Lauren Groff
