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.

    Good work! I live in Florida and I did ...

    5/5 Edsel - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lonely Planet Florida (Travel Guide) (Paperback) Good work!

    Good guide, covers everything

    5/5 FranM - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lonely Planet Florida (Travel Guide) (Paperback) I live in Florida and bought this mainly for guests staying with us (so I don't always have to explain everything from scratch) but found using it myself as well and enjoying it. If you're only going to one particularly area I would probably buy a dedicated guide but overall it should keep you busy with ideas and the Miami, Everglades, Orland (Disney) chapters are particularly comprehensive and spot on in my opinion. This is all in terms of what to do, I never pay too much attention to the food recommendations with lonely planet without looking at reviews online as well.

    Big state.

    3/5 matthew reardon - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Lonely Planet Florida (Travel Guide) (Paperback) Just OK. Florida is just too big for one book.
