Known for her meticulous portraits of community life in small-town New England, Elizabeth Strout is one of America’s finest living novelists. Born and brought up in Maine and New Hampshire, Strout began her career as a writer publishing short stories. Her first novel, Amy and Isabelle garnered widespread critical acclaim and was later adapted for film. She followed this with Abide With Me before, in 2008, publishing the novel Olive Kitteridge which made her a household name. Chronicling the everyday lives of abrasive, complex former school teacher Olive and the fellow residents of her town of Crosby, Maine, the novel won the Pulitzer Prize and was adapted into an Emmy Award-Winning series starring Frances McDormand. Her other novels include The Burgess Boys, My Name is Lucy Barton and Anything is Possible. In 2019 she returned to the character of Olive Kitteridge and her community for the follow-up book, Olive, Again.
The unforgettable protagonist of My Name is Lucy Barton and Oh William! finds herself reluctantly agreeing to spend lockdown with her ex-husband in a house by the sea in Strout’s masterful, pin-sharp yet comforting meditation on relationships, isolation and change.
