Lauren Groff’s Fates and Furies
“It occurred to her then that life was conical in shape, the past broadening beyond the sharp point of the lived moment. The more life you had, the more the base expanded, so that the wounds and treasons that were nearly imperceptible when they happened stretched like tiny dots on a balloon slowly blown up. A speck on the slender child grows into a gross deformity in the adult, inescapable, ragged at the edges.”
I loved this book! The book follows a marriage from beginning to end, but the first half of the book is from the husband’s perspective and the second half of the book is from the wife’s perspective. I really enjoyed the book and Lauren Groff’s writing style, so I would definitely recommend it!
