Love and Death in the Sunshine State: The Story of a Murder

Review ‘A murder on the Gulf’s Coast’s Anna Maria Island sets the stage for a fascinating exploration of love and loss, told amid swaying palm trees and seedy motels.’ —Entertainment Weekly “In Love and Death in the Sunshine State, this gripping exploration of an island murder and a heartland love, Cutter Wood subverts all our expectations for the true crime genre. He challenges what we mean by ‘true,’ by presenting us with feats of imagination alongside traditional reportage, and challenges how we understand ‘crime’ by asking us to consider the relationship between acts of extraordinary violence and the rhythms of our ordinary lives. Wood’s voice is smart, curious, playful, and wholly engaging.” —Leslie Jamison, author of The Recovering “Love and Death in the Sunshine State, the new debut by Cutter Wood, is an astonishing true-crime narrative that, in its lyricism and formal inventiveness, expands and defies our expectations of what literary nonfiction can be . . . In the spirit of William Maxwell’s So Long, See You Tomorrow, Wood pushes beyond the facts of the case itself to explore larger questions of intimacy, destruction, and regret. This is a brilliant first book by an enormously talented young writer.” —LitHub ‘Wood’s mixture of fact and art yields a tale both gritty and introspective, with a real murder providing an entree to an examination of the nature of love. Wood’s prose is detailed yet deft… This is a fine true-crime mystery and a touching journey into the human heart.’ —Minneapolis Star-Tribune “Love and Death in the Sunshine State is a memorable, thought-provoking work of true crime and imagination.” —Shelf Awareness “Cutter Wood’s book, Love and Death in the Sunshine State, is like the antidote to the typical true crime story. It’s a sad, tough story, but Cutter Wood takes the reader to the heart of the matter. His is a respectful approach to human imperfection and frailty. I look forward to reading Wood’s future works.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer   “An exploration of motive and desire, a little bit of death and a whole lot more love. It’s compelling and ethically sticky, and it will haunt you for a long time after you’re done.—CrimeReads.com “Wood combines elements of true crime with the techniques of contemporary fiction in his bold debut . . . Readers of literary nonfiction will find a promising new writer.” —Publishers Weekly “Those who appreciate style and creativity, which Wood has in abundance, will enjoy this.” —Booklist “ . . . written with psychological insight and literary flair.” —Kirkus Reviews “There’s a murder at the heart of Cutter Wood’s remarkably tender and haunting new book, but in its soul, this is a story about coming of age and falling in love. Ultimately, the greatest achievements of Love and Death in the Sunshine State are its unflinching attention to both what must be reported and what can only be imagined, and its insistence that somewhere between the two lies the complexity of our lived experience.” —John D’Agata, author of About a Mountain  ‘If Elmore Leonard had narrated Michael Paterniti’s Driving Mr. Albert, the result might be something like Cutter Wood’s Love and Death in the Sunshine State: a smart, engrossing true-life noir that weaves in meditations on love and the literary life, all set amid the palm trees and seedy motels of Florida’s steaming coastline.’ —Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich, author of The Fact of a Body ‘A striking blend of reportage, memoir, and confession, Cutter Wood has created a story that is bold, rapturous, and heartbreaking. In this extraordinary work of nonfiction, Wood considers what it means to love and be loved and reckons with the co-existence of our everyday desires in the midst of incomprehensible terror. Like the the work of Sebald, the book’s unexpected paths to self-reflection and grace are wonderfully disorienting and sure to leave you rethinking the world around you.’ —Jennifer Percy, author of Demon Camp Read more About the Author Cutter Wood was born in central Pennsylvania and received his BA from Brown University and an MFA in creative nonfiction from the University of Iowa. A recipient of an NEA fellowship, he has had essays published in Harper’s and other magazines and was a visiting scholar at the University of Iowa and the University of Louisville. He currently lives in Brooklyn with his wife and daughter. Read more
