“A gifted writer capable of deft pyrotechnics and well up to the challenges she sets herself.” New York Times Book Review

The Vaster Wilds is already the one novel this year I think belongs instantly in the canon.” – Pico Iyer

A three-time National Book Award finalist, bestselling novelist and short story writer, Lauren Groff spins highly imaginative fiction out of an acute awareness of the historical forces that shape human behavior. In a six-book oeuvre that spans centuries and embraces a variety of diverse settings, Groff elevates gripping storylines with electrifying prose and startling, unforgettable descriptions. Known for literary masterpieces such as Fates and Furies and Matrix, her highly-anticipated novel The Vaster Wilds, due out in September, is a thrilling adventure story set in the wilderness of colonial America.
