The Reader

My Name is Lucy Barton (Strout)

I loved Olive Kitteridge and The Burgess Boys. This one, I enjoyed. It goes in that category of “gently devastating.” Strout’s accomplishment here is Lucy Barton’s voice. 225 more words


Elizabeth Strout - Olive Kitteridge

This Pulitzer Prize winning novel, recently made into a film, is set in a small New England town by the edge of the Atlantic.  It doesn’t tell the story of Olive Kitteridge in a conventional way, but shows her character and life tangentially, through a series of portraits of her family, and of the people who live in the town. 450 more words
