9780099537267: Delicate Edible Birds: And Other Stories

Lauren Groff's critically acclaimed "The Monsters of Templeton" was shortlisted for the Orange Broadband Award for New Writers 2008, and critics hailed her as an enormous talent and a writer to watch. In "Delicate Edible Birds", she fulfils that promise. "Delicate Edible Birds" includes nine stories of vastly different styles and structures. "L. De Bard and Aliette" recreates the tale of Abelard and Heloise in New York during the 1918 flu epidemic; "Lucky Chow Fun" returns to Templeton, the setting of Groff's debut novel, for a contemporary account of what happens to outsiders in a small, insular town; the title story of "Delicate Edible Birds" is a harrowing, powerfully moving drama about a group of war correspondents, a lone woman among them, who fall prey to a frightening man in the French countryside while fleeing the Nazis. With a dazzling array of voices and settings, "Delicate Edible Birds" will cement Lauren Groff's reputation as one of the foremost talents of her generation.

About the Author:

Lauren Groff was born in Cooperstown, New York. She has a BA from Amherst College and an MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and has won fellowships to the Vermont Studio Center and Yaddo. Her debut novel, The Monsters of Templeton, was a New York Times Bestseller and was shortlisted for the Orange Broadband Award for New Writers 2008. She lives in Gainesville, Florida and is at work on her second novel.

From AudioFile:

These literary stories try to range far and wide, but are often unconvincing, contrived, even mannered. Details ring false, betraying the stories as palpably "made up"; they're best when they stick to the mundane. But Susan Ericksen's reading is better than the material. Her voice is strong, flexible, and likable. She indicates different voices almost effortlessly, and her emotional touch is both subtle and effective. Further, her pacing is excellent. From time to time, she delivers a phrase with the wrong emphasis and occasionally fumbles a word. Otherwise, for the most part, her reading is a pleasure. If only more of the stories were.
