Lauren Groff's critically acclaimed "The Monsters of Templeton" was shortlisted for the Orange Broadband Award for New Writers 2008, and critics hailed her as an enormous talent and a writer to watch. In "Delicate Edible Birds", she fulfils that promise. "Delicate Edible Birds" includes nine stories of vastly different styles and structures. "L. De Bard and Aliette" recreates the tale of Abelard and Heloise in New York during the 1918 flu epidemic; "Lucky Chow Fun" returns to Templeton, the setting of Groff's debut novel, for a contemporary account of what happens to outsiders in a small, insular town; the title story of "Delicate Edible Birds" is a harrowing, powerfully moving drama about a group of war correspondents, a lone woman among them, who fall prey to a frightening man in the French countryside while fleeing the Nazis. With a dazzling array of voices and settings, "Delicate Edible Birds" will cement Lauren Groff's reputation as one of the foremost talents of her generation.
