Product description

Review

"So much intimate, fragile, desperate humanness infuses these pages, it's breathtaking. Almost every declaration carries the force of revelation."--The Washington Post

"Being privy to the innermost thoughts of Lucy Barton--and, more to the point, deep inside a book by Strout--makes readers feel safe. We know we're in good hands."--NPR

"A poignant master class on aging and vulnerability . . . Oh William! . . . serves as a gentle reminder to be emotionally generous with our loved ones and as physically present as possible each and every day of our lives."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Loneliness and betrayal, themes to which the Pulitzer Prize-winning Strout has returned throughout her career, are ever present in this illuminating character-driven saga. . . . Strout's characters teem with angst and emotion, all of which [she] handles with a mastery of restraint and often in spare, true sentences. . . . It's not for nothing that Strout has been compared to Hemingway. In some ways, she betters him."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
