Review | Florida,
by Christine Schutt (TriQuarterly Books/
Northwestern University Press, 2003)
R. H. W. Dillard reviews Florida, the new
novel by Christine Schutt. Dillard writes: "Florida is . . .
an engaging book, emotionally strong, brilliantly written, word by word and
page by page, and profound in its insights—into life, into memory, and
into the uses of language to both capture and to free the human moment." This
review also appears in the June 2004 issue of The Hollins Critic and
is printed here with permission.
Published five times a year, The Hollins Critic has
been a leading American literary journal since 1964. Each issue includes
an essay on the work
of a contemporary writer, an artist's cover portrait, poetry by poets
both new and established, and brief book reviews (see Links).
