La novela del momento.


«La certeza absoluta no existe en ningún lugar. A los dioses les encanta jodernos.»
Lauren Groff
Un hombre y una mujer caminan muy juntos por la playa. Hace frío, pero no importa. De repente se esconden detrás de unas dunas para celebrar su primer acto de amor carnal. Él es Lotto, ella es Mathilde, los dos tienen veintidós años y acaban de casarse, aunque solo llevan unos quince días juntos y saben muy poco el uno del otro. El hilo de sangre que mancha los muslos de Mathilde sella esta entrega que parece absoluta y exclusiva, y así será durante más de veinte años.

Lotto y Mathilde se convierten en la pareja casi perfecta; basta una mirada para que se entiendan, un gesto cómplice para que los dos dejen una sala abarrotada de gente y aprovechen cualquier rincón para amarse. Lotto se dedica a escribir obras de teatro al hilo de su pasión por Shakespeare y Mathilde se convierte en la esposa ideal, que es musa, empresaria y ama de casa. Bien...

Bien, hasta que de repente el destino se impone. Es entonces cuando descubrimos que el matrimonio, bien mirado, es una larga conversación, y que en esta charla caben huecos, omisiones, palabras sueltas que pueden ser mentiras piadosas o alfileres.

Y es que toda historia tiene siempre al menos dos formas de ser contada.

“Lauren Groff is a writer of rare gifts, and Fates and Furies is an unabashedly ambitious novel that delivers – with comedy, tragedy, well-deployed erudition and unmistakable glimmers of brilliance throughout.” —The New York Times Book Review (cover review)

“Elaborate, sensual...a writer whose books are too exotic and unusual to be missed."—The New York Times

“Fates and Furies is a clear-the-ground triumph.” —Ron Charles, The Washington Post


From the award-winning, New York Times- bestselling author of The Monsters of Templeton and Arcadia, one of the most anticipated books of the fall: an exhilarating novel about marriage, creativity, art, and perception.

Fates and Furies is a literary masterpiece that defies expectation. A dazzling examination of a marriage, it is also a portrait of creative partnership written by one of the best writers of her generation.

Every story has two sides. Every relationship has two perspectives. And sometimes, it turns out, the key to a great marriage is not its truths but its secrets. At the core of this rich, expansive, layered novel, Lauren Groff presents the story of one such marriage over the course of twenty-four years.

At age twenty-two, Lotto and Mathilde are tall, glamorous, madly in love, and destined for greatness. A decade later, their marriage is still the envy of their friends, but with an electric thrill we understand that things are even more complicated and remarkable than they have seemed. With stunning revelations and multiple threads, and in prose that is vibrantly alive and original, Groff delivers a deeply satisfying novel about love, art, creativity, and power that is unlike anything that has come before it. Profound, surprising, propulsive, and emotionally riveting, it stirs both the mind and the heart.
