Olive, Again

Author(s): Elizabeth Strout

General Fiction

Staff Notes: Some books are so good you don't want them to end. Olive Kitteridge was one, and this sequel, a perfect continuation, gives us more Olive, at the heart of Crosby's community. Strout illuminates life by paying deep attention to the ordinary, but in her hands the ordinary becomes sublime. And 'by Godfrey!' (as Olive would say), she makes us think! - Andrea 


From the Pulitzer Prize-winning, Number One New York Times bestselling author of Olive Kitteridge and My Name is Lucy Barton

'A terrific writer' Zadie Smith

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


'A novel to treasure' Sunday Times


Olive, Again follows the blunt, contradictory yet deeply loveable Olive Kitteridge as she grows older, navigating the second half of her life as she comes to terms with the changes - sometimes welcome, sometimes not - in her own existence and in those around her.


Olive adjusts to her new life with her second husband, challenges her estranged son and his family to accept him, experiences loss and loneliness, witnesses the triumphs and heartbreaks of her friends and neighbours in the small coastal town of Crosby, Maine - and, finally, opens herself to new lessons about life.
