#1 New York Times bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout continues the life of her beloved Olive Kitteridge, a character who has captured the imaginations of millions of readers. Prickly, wry, resistant to change yet ruthlessly honest and deeply empathetic, Olive Kitteridge is “a compelling life force” (San Francisco Chronicle). The New Yorker has said that Elizabeth Strout “animates the ordinary with an astonishing force,” and 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, to move us, and to inspire moments of transcendent grace.
Elizabeth Strout is the author of several novels, including: Abide with Me, a national bestseller and BookSense pick, and Amy and Isabelle, which won the Los Angeles Times Art Seidenbaum Award for First Fiction and the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize, and was a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award and the Orange Prize in England. In 2009 she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for her book Olive Kitteridge. Her short stories have been published in a number of magazines, including The New Yorker. She teaches at the Master of Fine Arts program at Queens University of Charlotte.
@ 大胡子阿细 希望继续拍成剧 @ 卡桑德拉 I do not have a clue who I have been. Truthfully, I do not understand a thing. @ kikikiiii 我想我也到老都不会明白who I have been @ ISABELLA It is just a life, all we need to do is to bear the burden of the mystery with as much grace as we can @ Ashley Olive的续集，一如既往简洁的文字下隐藏着淡淡的孤独感。短篇小故事无一不流露巨大的信息量和深刻的情感，非常棒的文字！PS感谢发送电子版资源的豆友 @ fugue 这个架构简直叹为观止。写得好！写得真好！ @ 揍揍ZOE 承袭第一本的风格，每个人物的人生故事都跌宕起伏，小丧，但又不是不幸，因为有些心境是每个人在生活中迟早要面对的，或多或少。情绪像一艘小船，只会让你漂得离岸（安全感）越来越远，没有抵达的终点。从Henry到Jack，最后轮到Olive自己，她终于看着自己老去，慢慢进入不能自理的窘迫境遇，然后再次挣扎着靠岸（感谢短评里愿意分享书的豆友！！！） @ 蘑菇 大概我真的没有听懂这部小说。听的过程有些痛苦。整部小说的基调就是阴沉沉的，像古怪，阴郁，冷飕飕的冬天。 @ Ruby 比第一本还好 @ ISABELLA It is just a life, all we need to do is to bear the burden of the mystery with as much grace as we can
