Olive Kitteridge By Elizabeth Strout Description

[PDF] Olive Kitteridge By Elizabeth Strout. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. And now a major HBO mini-series starring Frances McDormand.

Olive Kitteridge: indomitable, compassionate and often unpredictable. A retired schoolteacher in a small coastal town in Maine, as she grows older she struggles to make sense of the changes in her life. She is a woman who sees into the hearts of those around her, their triumphs and tragedies.

We meet her stoic husband, bound to her in a marriage both broken and strong, and a young man who aches for the mother he lost - and whom Olive comforts by her mere presence, while her own son feels overwhelmed by her complex sensitivities.

A penetrating, vibrant exploration of the human soul, the story of Olive Kitteridge will make you laugh, nod in recognition, wince in pain, and shed a tear or two.


  • Watch out at the end of this edition

    This is a fantastic book but in this edition, iBooks has tacked the first chapter of a *totally separate novel* on to the end of the book without warning. There's no suggestion that you've actually finished Olive Kitteridge and are now reading a preview chapter of another novel, Burgess Boys - which is very, very confusing. It left me thinking the book ended on a ridiculously jarring note with a random chapter that had nothing to do with Olive. (Olive Kitteridge is a collection of linked short stories, so each chapter is a different story). The publisher or iBooks needs to fix this.
