Product description

Review

A novel of shining integrity and humour (Alice Munro on 'Amy and Isabelle')

As perfect a novel as you could ever read (Evening Standard on 'Olive Kitteridge')

My God - she is fun to read (Richard Bausch)

As ambitious as Philip Roth's American Pastoral but more intimate in tone. (Time Magazine on 'The Burgess Boys')

Strout animates the ordinary with astonishing force (The New Yorker on 'Olive Kitteridge')

Strout's prose propels the story forward with moments of startlingly poetic clarity. (The New Yorker on 'The Burgess Boys')

One of those rare, invigorating books that take an apparently familiar world and peer into it with ruthless intimacy, revealing a strange and startling place. (The New York Times Book Review on 'Amy and Isabelle')

Strout's greatly anticipated second novel . . . is an answered prayer. (Vanity Fair on 'Abide With Me')

Elizabeth Strout writes beautifully about the compromises and small joys of what we might call mature people. Delicate, nuanced, insightful, and profoundly moving, Olive Kitteridge provides exactly the pleasures and the depths of feeling that I crave when I read fiction (Ann Packer on 'Olive Kitteridge')

Book Description

From Lucy's hospital bed, we are drawn ever more deeply into the emotional complexity of family life, the inescapable power of the past, and the memories - however painful - that bind a family together.
