'Stunningly sensual and visceral' NEW YORK TIMES 'Smart, beautiful . . . paints a lyrical picture' STYLIST 'Groff is a sensuous writer' GUARDIAN In the fields of western New York State in the 1970s, on the grounds of a decaying mansion called Arcadia House, a few dozen idealists set out to live off the land. Abe and Hannah's only child, Bit, is born into the commune soon after its creation. He grows up there, becoming deeply attached to its way of life and everyone within it, in particular the beautiful but troubled Helle. While the commune rises and falls, Bit, too, ages and changes. But when it's time to find a way to live in the world beyond Arcadia, will he be able to let go of the past to forge a new start? 'An exquisite tale of idealism and disintegration . . . Utterly absorbing' MARIE CLAIRE 'Intricately wrought . . . A powerful pean to the human desire to make the right sort of place live' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'Arcadia is stunningly sensual and visceral in describing behaviour straight out of a time capsule . . . A shimmering evocation of the commune's heyday' NEW YORK TIMES

Powerful and affectingCaptures a five-year-olds consciousness with rare, almost mystical intensity, this is a vivid, original and generous-hearted book. * Daily Mail * An exquisite tale of idealism and disintegrationUtterly absorbing. * Marie Claire * Richly peopled and ambitious and oh, so lovely, Lauren Groff's Arcadia is one of the most moving and satisfying novels I've read in a long time. It's not possible to write any better without showing off. The raw beauty of Ms. Groffs prose is one of the best things about Arcadia ... stunningly sensual and visceral in describing behaviour straight out of a time capsule extraordinarily rich imagination, she writes about this life as if she has known it. * New York Times * Groff is a sensuous writer. * Guardian * Intricately wrought ... A powerful paean to the human desire to make the right sort of place to live. * Sunday Telegraph * Smart, beautiful, rooted in an earthy and glorious location ... Groffs beautifully written Arcadia paints a lyrical picture ... You fall in love with Arcadias protagonist, Bit, and find yourself transported to a different time, place and lifestyle. * Stylist 5 stars * Arcadia, her second novel, cements all of Groffs promise, and then someDeft-structural and convincing authorial controlWonderful stuff. * Mirror, Book of the Week * With Arcadia, Groff has woven her own tale, in eloquent prose thats rich in sense of place and depth of feeling * Independent on Sunday * The novels greatest strength is its vision of the violent fecundity of natureGroff excels in writing with a kind of fairy-tale lucidityThe books structure and imagery are full of delightful intricacies and cruel ironies. * Times Literary Supplement * One of our most talented writers, and Arcadia one of the most revelatory, magical and ambitious novels I've read in years.
