This offer is for a complete set of Lauren Groff's five works -- each has been SIGNED by Lauren Groff on their respective title pages! The set includes: 1) "The Monsters of Templeton" (2008) - "The day I returned to Templeton steeped in disgrace, the fifty-foot corpse of a monster surfaced in Lake Glimmerglass." So begins the story, a novel spanning two centuries: part a contemporary story of a girl's search for her father, part historical novel, and part ghost story, this spellbinding novel is at its core a tale of how one town holds the secrets of a family. Her first novel, it was shortlisted for the Orange Prize. 2) "Delicate Edible Birds and Other Stories" (2009) - Here are nine stories of astonishing insight and variety, each revealing a resonant drama within the life of a twentieth-century American woman. 3) "Arcadia" (2012) - This tells the story of the first child born in a fictional 1960s commune in upstate New York. Recognized as one of Best Books of 2012 by The New York Times as well as many other favorable reviews. 4) "Fates and Furies" (2015) - a portrait of a 24-year marriage from two points of view, first the husband's and then the wife's. Nominated for the National Book Award and featured in many "best of 2015" fiction lists. 5) "Florida" (2018) - The stories in this collection span characters, towns, decades, even centuries, but Florida--its landscapes, climate, history, and state of mind--becomes the gravitational center: an energy, a mood, as much as a place of residence. Winner of The Story Prize for short story collections published in 2018. Also a Finalist for the National Book Award.
