Olive, Again: Signed Edition (Hardback)Elizabeth Strout (author)
- Coming soon
One of America’s most adept chroniclers of everyday life, there are few novelists who get under a character's skin more thoroughly than Elizabeth Strout. In Olive Again she returns to her finest creation, spiky, obdurate and disarmingly human anti-heroine Olive Kitteridge for a fine chronicle of late love and generational division, set in the coastal Maine community that Strout has made her own.
The long-awaited follow-up to the Pulitzer Prize-winning, No.1 New York Times bestselling Olive Kitteridge.
Olive, Again will pick up where Olive Kitteridge left off, following the next decade of Olive's life - through a second marriage, an evolving relationship with her son, and encounters with a cast of memorable characters in the seaside town of Crosby, Maine.
