In this mesmerizing collection of linked, short stories (ranging in plot from a hostage situation to a funeral), Strout follows the title protagonist through a series of life events through her stunning prose.

Set in Maine – Kitteredge watches Olive – a retired math teacher and her husband, Henry – a pharmacist – navigate through their lives. Shifting through time, the stories closely examine the relationships in a small town and the intricate dynamics of family connections. A stunning feat.

Great for:
• Any lover of gorgeous prose
• Readers who enjoy books set in small-town America
• Those interested in observing an author turn the mundane into compelling narrative.
