New York Times Bestseller

"Timeless and vast... The raw beauty of Ms. Groff's prose is one of the best things about Arcadia. But it is by no means this book's only kind of splendor." --Janet Maslin, The New York Times

"Even the most incidental details vibrate with life Arcadia wends a harrowing path back to a fragile, lovely place you can believe in." --Ron Charles, The Washington Post

In the fields of western New York State in the 1970s, a few dozen idealists set out to live off the land, founding a commune centered on the grounds of a decaying mansion called Arcadia House. Arcadia follows this romantic utopian dream from its hopeful start through its heyday. Arcadia's inhabitants include Handy, the charismatic leader; his wife, Astrid, a midwife; Abe, a master carpenter; Hannah, a baker and historian; and Abe and Hannah's only child, Bit. While Arcadia rises and falls, Bit, too, ages and changes. He falls in love with Helle, Handy's lovely, troubled daughter. And eventually he must face the world beyond Arcadia.

In Arcadia, Groff displays her literary gifts to stunning effect.

"Fascinating." --People (****)

"It's not possible to write any better without showing off." --Richard Russo, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Empire Falls

"Dazzling." --Vogue

Book Description Voice. 1 Paperback(s), 2012. soft. Book Condition: New. (One of the New York Times Book Review's 100 Notable Books of 2012) In the fields of western New York State in the 1970s, a few dozen idealists set out to live off the land, founding a commune on the estate surrounding a decaying mansion called Arcadia House. This novel from the author of The Monsters of Templeton follows their romantic utopian dream from its hopeful start, through its heyday, to the time when their children suddenly must face the world beyond."Richly peopled and ambitious and oh, so lovely, Lauren Groff's Arcadia is one of the most moving and satisfying novels I've read in a long time. It's not possible to write any better without showing off."—Richard Russo "Readers doomed to miss their subway stops will wish the cover also included a warning: 'This novel will swallow you whole.' Arcadia centers on Bit Stone, the kindhearted only child of Hannah and Abe Stone, two of the finest freaky parents in recent literary memory, who raise him in the western New York commune they helped found in the 1970s. In Arcadia, they intended to establish a home 'outside the evil of commerce' and 'a beacon to light up the world.' This experiment lasts until Bit is 14. The novel then abruptly leaps to post-9/11 New York City, where the Stones fled when Arcadia failed them. Arcadia reminds us that 'when we lose the stories we have believed about ourselves, we are losing more than stories, we are losing ourselves'."—NYTBR 298. Bookseller Inventory # 36240
