Florida

Creator: Christine Schutt | Fiction - 2004-02-13

Placed in the care of relatives at a young age, Alive Fivey struggles to adapt within numerous homes and eventually finds refuge in books, a childhood that leads her to discover her own promise as a writer.

Publisher: Northwestern University Press

About this book
Finalist for the 2004 National Book Award Florida is the portrait of the artist as a young woman, an orphan's story full of loss and wonder, a familiar tale told in original language. Alice Fivey, fatherless at age seven, is left in the care of her relatives at ten when her love-wearied mother loses custody of her and submits to the sanitarium and years of psychiatric care. A namesake daughter locked in the orphan's move-around life, she must hold still while the seamstress pins her into someone not her mother. But they share the same name, so she is her mother, isn't she? Alice finds consolation in books and she herself is a storyteller who must build a home for herself word by right word. Florida is her story, recalled in brief scenes of spare beauty and strangeness as Alice moves from house to house, ever further from the desolation of her mother's actions, ever closer to the meaning of her experience. In this most elegiac and luminous novel, Schutt gives voice to the feast of memory, the mystery of the mad and missing, and above all, the life-giving power of language.

    ALL ABOUT AND AROUND FLORIDA

    This book is a fun read but containing many serious events that occurred, some not too many years ago, others recent, some many years ago.

I ordered this book because I lived in Florida for nineteen years. Two of my children were born in Florida. I have traveled all over the state and go back every year to visit. Key West seems not to be in the United States, but in a foreign country. Traveling down the keys, so much sky, so much water, very little land. One man I spoke to goes on vacation every year to Florida. People don't wear too many clothes he says. But Florida does get awfully hot.The book contains eighteen chapters about different times, history, politics, hurricanes, weather, land plus so much more.

    You have to read this book

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Oh, Florida!: How America's Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country (Hardcover) I am a native Floridian and bought this book as soon as it was published. It is a wonderfully written, hilarious, truthful narrative of Florida and its people. I was laughing out loud over and over and read the entire book this weekend. Craig Pittman captures the irony, diversity, and bizarre stories of America's bellweather state. Great reading for anyone !

    Welcome to Wackiland - Fun Guide to the Sunshine State's "Other" Sights :-)

    5/5 Alex - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Weird Florida: Your Travel Guide to Florida's Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets (Paperback) I have spent about a decade living in Florida, and while I was well-aware of some of the wackiness the Sunshine State has to offer, this "off the beaten path" guidebook has added a whole lot of insight, not to mention many, many sights and places I have added to my "must see" and "must do" bucket lists. If seeing those places is only half as much fun as it was reading about those in this book, those trips will be totally worth it. :-) Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 1, 2015

    5/5 Joan Kelley - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Weird Florida: Your Travel Guide to Florida's Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets (Paperback) Recently flew to visit my daughter so I read part of the book while waiting for my connecting flight, both coming and going. I have not finished it yet, but what I have read so far is very cool and interesting! I grew up in Florida and live here now so I will be able to visit some of the sites shown in the book!

    It's a great conversation piece

    5/5 Emily Elizabeth - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Weird Florida: Your Travel Guide to Florida's Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets (Paperback) I bought this as a gift but my husband wanted to keep it so I will be ordering another one. He lived in Florida more than 20 years and had not heard of a lot of the things in the book so the authors definitely managed to find some obscure stories. It's a great conversation piece.
