Olive, Again


Add your own review!

Overview

Olive, Again follows the blunt, contradictory yet deeply loveable Olive Kitteridge as she grows older, navigating the second half of her life as she comes to terms with the changes - sometimes welcome, sometimes not - in her own existence and in those around her. Olive adjusts to her new life with her second husband, challenges her estranged son and his family to accept him, experiences loss and loneliness, witnesses the triumphs and heartbreaks of her friends and neighbours in the small coastal town of Crosby, Maine - and, finally, opens herself to new lessons about life.

Reviews

She gets better with each book -- Maggie O'Farrell There's no simple truth about human existence, Strout reminds us, only wonderful, painful complexity. 'Well, that's life,' Olive says. 'Nothing you can do about it.' Beautifully written and alive with compassion, at times almost unbearably poignant. A thrilling book in every way. * Kirkus Reviews (starred review) * Strout animates the ordinary with astonishing force * New Yorker * It's hard to believe that a year after the astonishing My Name Is Lucy Barton Elizabeth Strout could bring us another book that is by every measure its equal, but what Strout proves to us again and again is that where she's concerned, anything is possible. This book, this writer, are magnificent. -- Ann Patchett on 'Anything is Possible' Writing of this quality comes from a commitment to listening, from a perfect attunement to the human condition, from an attention to reality so exact that it goes beyond a skill and becomes a virtue -- Hilary Mantel on 'My Name is Lucy Barton' A writer at the peak of her powers * Literary Review * Strout, always good, just keeps getting better * Vogue * Elizabeth Strout's prose is like words doing jazz -- Rachel Joyce Strout really can write you into a world until you feel you are there with her, in that house, that life, that little Podunk of a place * The Times * A powerful storyteller immersed in the nuances of human relationships * Observer *
