Waterstones Says

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.

Shortlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize 2023

From Pulitzer Prize-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Strout, comes Lucy by the Sea, a novel featuring Lucy Barton, the indomitable heroine of My Name is Lucy Barton and Oh William!

Lucy is uprooted from her life in New York City and reluctantly goes into lockdown with her ex-husband William in a house on the coast of Maine. Strout's new novel is a miraculous work of fiction. A brilliantly sharp evocation of the period we have just lived through, it is a novel that both resonates deeply and consoles us too.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Stunningly universal . . . with brilliant acuity, Strout has seized on the parallels between Lucy Barton's pervasive sense of alienation and the way the recent global crisis has exposed the helplessness felt by ordinary people everywhere - Daily Telegraph, 5 stars

[Strout's] novels, intricately and painstakingly crafted, overlap and intertwine to create an instantly recognizable fictional landscape . . . you don't so much read a Strout novel as inhabit it - Guardian

A superbly gifted storyteller and a craftswoman in a league of her own - Hilary Mantel

I cannot get Lucy Barton out of my head - The Times
