Description

Brought to you by Penguin. 

An extraordinary new novel by the Pulitzer Prize-winning, number one New York Times best-selling author of Olive Kitteridge and My Name is Lucy Barton.

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.

Indomitable Olive

Elizabeth Strout does it again Strout is such an insightful and generous writer and in Olive she has created someone we can all relate to. Olive has insight enough but no real inclination to change her ways and it is, I think, this unwillingness or inability to people-please I admire most about her. There are many poignant moments in this book and I will never forget the visceral thwack I felt as I listened to the chapter entitled The Poet. The poem is brutal and honest but Olive really is indomitable and she always picks herself up, dusts herself off and starts all over again. Walking with Olive, I feel less out of step with the world. Strout shows us human nature in all its complexity and shines a light on all of us.
