WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE • THE EMMY AWARD–WINNING HBO MINISERIES STARRING FRANCES MCDORMAND, RICHARD JENKINS, AND BILL MURRAY In a voice more powerful and compassionate than ever before, New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Strout binds together thirteen rich, luminous narratives into a book with the heft of a novel, through the presence of one larger-than-life, unforgettable character: Olive Kitteridge. At the edge of the continent, Crosby, Maine, may seem like nowhere, but seen through this brilliant writer’s eyes, it’s in essence the whole world, and the lives that are lived there are filled with all of the grand human drama–desire, despair, jealousy, hope, and love. At times stern, at other times patient, at times perceptive, at other times in sad denial, Olive Kitteridge, a retired schoolteacher, deplores the changes in her little town and in the world at large, but she doesn’t always recognize the changes in those around her: a lounge musician haunted by a past romance: a former student who has lost the will to live: Olive’s own adult child, who feels tyrannized by her irrational sensitivities; and Henry, who finds his loyalty to his marriage both a blessing and a curse. As the townspeople grapple with their problems, mild and dire, Olive is brought to a deeper understanding of herself and her life–sometimes painfully, but always with ruthless honesty. Olive Kitteridge offers profound insights into the human condition–its conflicts, its tragedies and joys, and the endurance it requires. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR BY People • USA Today • The Atlantic • The Washington Post Book World • Seattle Post-Intelligencer • Entertainment Weekly • The Christian Science Monitor • San Francisco Chronicle • Salon • San Antonio Express-News • Chicago Tribune • The Wall Street Journal “Perceptive, deeply empathetic . . .

Premio Pulitzer, 2009 Premio Bancarella, 2010 Premio Mondello, 2012 In un angolo del continente nordamericano c’è Crosby, nel Maine: un luogo senza importanza che tuttavia, grazie alla sottile lama dello sguardo della Strout, diviene lo specchio di un mondo più ampio. Perché in questo piccolo villaggio affacciato sull’Oceano Atlantico c’è una donna che regge i fili delle storie, e delle vite, di tutti i suoi concittadini. È Olive Kitteridge, un’insegnante in pensione che, con implacabile intelligenza critica, osserva i segni del tempo moltiplicarsi intorno a lei, tanto che poco o nulla le sfugge dell’animo di chi le sta accanto: un vecchio studente che ha smarrito il desiderio di vivere; Christopher, il figlio, tirannizzato dalla sua sensibilità spietata; un marito, Henry, che nella sua stessa fedeltà al matrimonio scopre una benedizione, e una croce. E ancora, le due sorelle Julie e Winnie: la prima, abbandonata sull’altare ma non rassegnata a una vita di rinuncia, sul punto di fuggire ricorderà le parole illuminanti della sua ex insegnante: «Non abbiate paura della vostra fame. Se ne avrete paura, sarete soltanto degli sciocchi qualsiasi». Con dolore, e con disarmante onestà, in Olive Kitteridge si accampano i vari accenti e declinazioni della condizione umana –

Olive est l'épouse du pharmacien de Crosby, une petite ville côtière du Maine. Elle a un fils, Christopher, qu'elle étouffe. Et c'est aussi un professeur de mathématiques brutal et tyrannique, capable, pourtant, d'élans de bonté. Personnalité hors normes, a priori peu aimable, mais ô combien attachante, Olive traverse cette fresque polyphonique où les destins des habitants de Crosby - héros ordinaires - s'entremêlent sur une période de trente ans. Salué outre-Atlantique pour la virtuosité de sa construction et la finesse de son ton, Olive Kitteridge s'inscrit dans la lignée de romans comme Le cœur est un chasseur solitaire, de Carson McCullers, ou Les Corrections, de Jonathan Franzen. Ce livre a reçu le prix Pulitzer.

From the Man Booker Prize longlisted author of My Name is Lucy Barton Two brothers' lives are irrevocably altered when their 19-year-old nephew is embroiled in a scandal of his own making Haunted by the freak accident that killed their father when they were children, Jim and Bob Burgess escaped from their Maine hometown of Shirley Falls for New York City as soon as they possibly could. Jim, a sleek, successful corporate lawyer, has belittled his bighearted brother their whole lives, and Bob, a legal aid attorney who idolises Jim, has always taken it in his stride. But their long-standing dynamic is upended when their sister, Susan - the sibling who stayed behind - urgently calls them home. Her lonely teenage son, Zach, has landed himself into a world of trouble, and Susan desperately needs their help. And so the Burgess brothers return to the landscape of their childhood, where the long-buried tensions that have shaped and shadowed their relationship begin to surface in unexpected ways that will change them forever. * 'Strout animates the ordinary with an astonishing force' The New Yorker * 'As perfect a novel as you will ever read' Evening Standard on Olive Kitteridge * 'A

From the Man Booker Prize Longlisted author of My Name is Lucy Barton Katherine is only five-years-old. Struck dumb with grief at her mother's death, it is down to her father, the heartbroken minister Tyler Caskey, to bring his daughter out of silence she has observed in the wake of the family's tragedy. But Tyler Caskey is barely surviving himself. His cold, church-assigned home is colder still since Lauren's death, and he struggles to find the right words for his sermons; struggles to be a leader to his congregation when he himself is lost. When Katherine's schoolteacher calls to discuss his daughter's anti-social behaviour, it sparks a chain of events that begins to tear down Tyler's defences. The small-town rumour-mill has much to make of Katherine's odd behaviour, and even more to say about Tyler's relationship with his housekeeper, Connie Hatch. And in Tyler's darkest hour, a startling discovery will test his congregation's humanity - and his own will to endure the kinds of trials that sooner or later test us all. From the Orange Prize-shortlisted author of Amy & Isabelle, this is a startlingly beautiful novel about love and abandonment, faith and hypocrisy; and the peril of family secrets…
