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.

    5/5 HollyWK - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo State Cutting & Serving Board, Alaska, 100% Bamboo Board for Cooking and Entertaining (Kitchen) I ordered two cutting boards - one Texas and one Alaska. The Alaska board is missing South East Alaska, but otherwise they are both great. I am from Texas and my husband is from Alaska so I hung them up in our kitchen together. He says there is a problem with the sizing. I have included a picture of what they look like and another of what he says they should look lie., August 9, 2015

    5/5 Grant Harmon - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo State Cutting & Serving Board, California, 100% Bamboo Board for Cooking and Entertaining (Kitchen) I got this for my girlfriend, who loves California, for Christmas and she loved it! But she broke up with me the next day so maybe she didn't like it. The actual board seems really nice quality and it has a nice leather srap in the top left corner to hang it from so it balences upright.

    Just the Facts. A great but cautionary tale of Florida.

    On occasion, a reviewer will claim this book is 'negative' or designed to discourage a Florida move. Those people are pretty much wrong or didn't carefully consider the plethora of thoughtful information provided. Having just made the Florida move, I can attest to each item in this story and know that if you plan on moving to the Sunshine State, you need to consider each potential problem and decide whether you can deal with it or not. Hate bugs? You will have to exterminate and also be tolerant of some new species to you if you are from the Great North. The problem is well described by Ron Stack in his book. Humidity? Plot it out for a few months and see if you can deal with it. Odds are you will run air conditioning 12 months out of the year. Good thing is that air conditioners are replaced more often than in the North and are usually very efficient. Electric costs are low in Florida. Taxes? In the growth areas like Sarasota, property taxes are rising all the time... 5/5 stylusx (Chicago) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Read this book before you decide to move

    5/5 Amazon Customer (Boston) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Florida Move Guide: The Unofficial Moving to Florida Warning, Decision and Help Guide (Paperback) If you've enjoyed your vacations in Florida and are now thinking of moving there or buying property there, then you owe it to yourself to read this book. It's about the difference between visiting Florida and living there. Many people move to Florida, come to hate it for one reason or another, and move back. This book will help you figure out whether you're really going to enjoy living there. In our case, it didn't scare us away. It confirmed that our expectations were fairly realistic, and our plans were pretty reasonable. Whether Florida will suit you or not, it's good to know before you put your money in.

    5/5 Lynn T Reynolds - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Florida Move Guide: The Unofficial Moving to Florida Warning, Decision and Help Guide (Paperback) Bought this while considering making the move from the North East to Fl. Found the information very helpful. Initially felt the author was writing this to scare people away from moving down but in the end felt it was really good to see both positive and negative sides of making the move to AND living in an area neither of us had ever done more than vacation in. You don't go to Disney every day after all! He made a lot of good points about buying property, expectations of visitors up north, & pointing out things that make people regret the move so you don't wind up making a costly mistake!
