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.

    Wierd and wonderful Florida

    It's not hard to find strangeness here.On my drive from the southeast part of Florida to the western shore of St. Pete Beach, I encountered one very odd thing after the next, in a very strange (at least to me) landscape.I'm not used to driving for hours without seeing any buildings, as a native northeasterner, for one thing. But in the vast wilderness of empty pastures that is central Florida, where there are no houses or buildings for hours, was a Wal-Mart, with a full parking lot. My mind went blank.I drove another two hours, seeing no signs of any slightest civilization, and came to---are you ready---a store selling ball gowns, with mannequins modeling them in the front window. I hadn't even seen one other car in hours. I drove another two hours, with no houses or stores or buildings, only cow pastures without cows, very rarely seeing another car, and came to a gas station, where stood---the Refrigerator! And he was signing a boy's autograph, before... 5/5 AKN - See all my reviews This review is from: Weird Florida: Your Travel Guide to Florida's Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets (Paperback) It's not hard to find strangeness here.On my drive from the southeast part of Florida to the western shore of St. Pete Beach, I encountered one very odd thing after the next, in a very strange (at least to me) landscape.I'm not used to driving for hours without seeing any buildings, as a native northeasterner, for one thing.

    Great mystery with a twist !

    This had me gripped from the first page! Exciting mystery with a surprise ending that I didn’t see coming – and I’m a pretty seasoned reader of mysteries / crime fiction. I also found it fascinating to learn more about rural Florida – a part of the US that I’m not familiar with at all and which is nothing like the fairyland-amusement-park-beach-and-casinos façade that is always presented to tourists!Great cast of characters – even the small supporting ones – you felt like you really got to know them. And you really feel for the hero, deputy sheriff Larry Macklin, who is trying to solve a disturbing murder and the mystery of several arson attacks, while also carving out an identity and career for himself in the shadow of a father who is a well-known local authority figure. His relationship with his father was one of the most interesting parts of the story for me – and his relationship with his father’s dog, a slobbery... 5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews This review is from: November's Past (Larry Macklin Mysteries Book 1) (Kindle Edition) This had me gripped from the first page!

    Would Recommend.

    This was an interesting take on your average police procedural novel. Instead of the main focus being on the murders, there was just as much focus placed on the personal interactions of Deputy Macklin. It was those little "personal" touches that made this novel more engaging to me as a reader.I loved the supporting characters in this novel as well. In fact, I think my personal favorite was Mauser - Sheriff Macklin's Great Dane. This isn't to say that the other human characters aren't all well developed and bring something to the overall story in their own right - but Mauser not only provided some comic relief in an otherwise serious novel, but he also reminded me so much of my own dogs that I couldn't help but laugh whenever he was "on the scene".From the banter between the deputies, to Larry's trying to balance a promise to his father with what he really wants out of life (and trying to put his all into something his heart isn't entirely in),... 4/5 Krystal (New Jersey, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: November's Past (Larry Macklin Mysteries Book 1) (Kindle Edition) This was an interesting take on your average police procedural novel.

    Grabbed me and wouldn't let go

    5/5 ML - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: November's Past (Larry Macklin Mysteries Book 1) (Kindle Edition) An intriguing mystery. Larry the Sherrif's son is much better than he gives himself credit for. The story flows very nicely and the end will surprise you. I love that the main girl is a veterinarian assistant and there's a dog (being that I'm an animal lover). Just a most pleasant read.
