Book Thirtytwo: Arcadia

Arcadia, Lauren Groff

So, this is now my favorite book of the year. Which makes sense, as Monsters of Templeton was one of my favorite novels of the past few years. And though Arcadia is much, much different it is so beautiful and amazing. Gah, seriously, so good! It tells the story of Bit, who grew up on a commune in upstate New York, from his perspective as a little boy, then a teenager, and then as an adult. While the story was engrossing, the writing was what made this work. I could see everything so vividly and the writing was my kind of poetic. Simple and spare and gorgeous.
