About the Book:
Pub Date: September 12, 2023
A captivating survival story. . . this wholly enveloping book has. . . deep examinations of faith, dominion, and human nature; Groff's seemingly joyfully related, seamless period prose; and the time-collapsing sense of reading a text channeled directly from the mind of a long-ago-living, breathing woman facing extraordinary circumstances."
-- Booklist, STARRED review
Extraordinary. . .Groff builds and maintains suspense on multiple levels, while offering an unflinching portrayal of her heroine's desperation and will to survive. [ The Vaster Wilds] is a triumph."
-- Publishers Weekly, STARRED review
"Fever dream of a novel. . . powered by a thrumming engine of language and rhythm. . . The writing is inspired, the imaginative power near mystic."
"New book alerts from Lauren Groff always make us sit up straighter and pay attention, especially now that we suspect she may have a time machine at her disposal; we'll forgive her for keeping it to herself if she keeps writing what feel like dispatches from the most brilliant denizens of another time and place."
--Linda, H&H Books
A taut and electrifying novel from celebrated bestselling author Lauren Groff, about one spirited girl alone in the wilderness, trying to survive.
A servant girl escapes from a colonial settlement in the wilderness. She carries nothing with her but her wits, a few possessions, and the spark of god that burns hot within her. What she finds in this terra incognita is beyond the limits of her imagination and will bend her belief in everything that her own civilization has taught her. Lauren Groff's new novel is at once a thrilling adventure story and a penetrating fable about trying to find a new way of living in a world succumbing to the churn of colonialism. The Vaster Wilds is a work of raw and prophetic power that tells the story of America in miniature, through one girl at a hinge point in history, to ask how--and if--we can adapt quickly enough to save ourselves.
Lauren Groff is a three-time National Book Award finalist and the New York Times bestselling author of the novels The Monsters of Templeton, Arcadia, Fates and Furies, and Matrix, and the short story collections Delicate Edible Birds and Florida. She has won the Story Prize and the Joyce Carol Oates Prize, and has been a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. Groff 's work regularly appears in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and elsewhere.
