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

    Picture doesn't do it justice, looks expensive!!

    5/5 Amazonfan06 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo State Cutting & Serving Board, Wisconsin, 100% Bamboo Board for Cooking and Entertaining (Kitchen) I bought this for my sister in law and her husband who are in their late 30's with no kids and seem to have everything! They are proud of their relocation to Wisconsin and seem to embrace the lifestyle that being a "Cheese Head" embodies. I thought this would be a great serving platter for cheese and sausage with a good Wisconsin beer. It was more expensive looking than I imagined and had beautiful coloring. I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique and quality gift. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 7, 2015

    5/5 hammieo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo State Cutting & Serving Board, Pennsylvania, 100% Bamboo Board for Cooking and Entertaining (Kitchen) Good cutting board, although I doubt very much we'll use it as a "cutting" board. Will likely end up being a hot plate holder for the table or hanging in the kitchen as an item of display. It's nicely built, comes with a nice leather strap - if you want to hang it up. I wouldn't recommend dishwashing this - I've had other cutting boards that are not single pieces of wood and with the heat from the dishwasher, they eventually come apart (glue melting or eaten by dish soap). Obviously with this being bamboo, it's not a single piece -- that would be a huge stalk!! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 21, 2016
    Ideal for food prep, serving and entertaining; display to show your state pride; makes a great gift
    Bamboo is one of the most renewable resources in the world; Made of Moso bamboo which is known for its strength, density and high quality
    Easy on knife blades, bamboo is a natural alternative to wood, it is substantially stronger than hard woods and easier on the environment
    Hand wash with warm water and mild detergent; occasionally treat with Totally Bamboo's Revitalizing Mineral Oil to protect and extend the life and beauty of your board
    Florida shaped bamboo cutting and serving board, measures 13.5 x 12.25-inch
