Olive Again (Strout)

Olive Again 
Elizabeth Strout, 2019
Random House
304 pp.

The New Yorker has said that Elizabeth Strout "animates the ordinary with an astonishing force."

She has never done so more clearly than in these pages, where the iconic Olive struggles to understand not only herself and her own life but the lives of those around her in the town of Crosby, Maine.

Whether with a teenager coming to terms with the loss of her father, a young woman about to give birth during a hilariously inopportune moment, a nurse who confesses a secret high school crush, or a lawyer who struggles with an inheritance she does not want to accept, the unforgettable Olive will continue to startle us and to move us.

In Strout’s words, Olive will inspire us "to bear the burden of the mystery with as much grace as we can." (From the publisher.)
