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 sylodus nudem - See all my reviews This review is from: Florida Authentica: Your field guide to the unique, eccentric, and natural marvels of the real Sunshine State (Paperback) Ron Wiggins has done a fabulous job at acquainting both the Florida native and non-native reader with an enjoyable review of a diverse number of great places to visit in Florida besides the Big Name Attractions that most folks are aware of. His humorous and informative style makes for an easy read that might even elicit a grin or laugh here and there. Florida Authentica is a must for those that want to know more of the "Other Florida".

    Wiggins' book should be FDA approved!

    5/5 Mark O. Renz (Lehigh Acres, Florida, USA) - See all my reviews, April 28, 2012

    An entertaining read, but not very good for planning one day trips in any given region of FL

    2/5 Kev. Co. (St. Petersburg, FL) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Florida Authentica: Your field guide to the unique, eccentric, and natural marvels of the real Sunshine State (Paperback) I was born and raised in Florida. This book is not user friendly for regional travel in Florida. The stories are scattered and not in any particular order. Not easy to just pick up and find a trip to take in State. Would recommend Florida on a Tankful over this book. On the bright side, the stories are entertaining to read.
