Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE At times stern, at other times patient, at times perceptive, at other times in sad denial, Olive Kitteridge, a retired schoolteacher, deplores the changes in her little town of Crosby, Maine, and in the world at large, but she doesn t always recognize the changes in those around her: a lounge musician haunted by a past romance; a former student who has lost the will to live; Olive s own adult child, who feels tyrannized by her irrational sensitivities; and her husband, Henry, who finds his loyalty to his marriage both a blessing and a curse. As the townspeople grapple with their problems, mild and dire, Olive is brought to a deeper understanding of herself and her life-sometimes painfully, but always with ruthless honesty. Olive Kitteridge offers profound insights into the human condition-its conflicts, its tragedies and joys, and the endurance it requires. Praise for Olive Kitteridge Perceptive, deeply empathetic . . . Olive is the axis around which these thirteen complex, relentlessly human narratives spin themselves into Elizabeth Strout s unforgettable novel in stories. -O: The Oprah Magazine Fiction lovers, remember this name: Olive Kitteridge. . . . You ll never forget her. . . . [Elizabeth Strout] constructs her stories with rich irony and moments of genuine surprise and intense emotion. . . . Glorious, powerful stuff. -USA Today Funny, wicked and remorseful, Mrs. Kitteridge is a compelling life force, a red-blooded original. When she s not onstage, we look forward to her return. The book is a page-turner because of her. - San Francisco Chronicle Olive Kitteridge still lingers in memory like a treasured photograph. -Seattle Post-Intelligencer Rarely does a story collection pack such a gutsy emotional punch. -Entertainment Weekly Strout animates the ordinary with astonishing force. . . . [She] makes us experience not only the terrors of change but also the terrifying hope that change can bring: she plunges us into these churning waters and we come up gasping for air. -The New Yorker.
