Product Details


“Return to the wonderful world of Strout’s unforgettable Pulizer Prize–winning novel, Olive Kitteridge, with Olive, Again. Strout weaves together the stories of the different characters populating Crosby, Maine, in her inimitable voice, all tied together by Olive. . . . Lose yourself in the world of Olive, Again. You’ll be so glad you did.”PopSugar
“The lovable, irascible Olive Kitteridge is back in this sequel to the charming (but also casually devastating) 2008 novel that won a Pulitzer Prize and spawned an HBO miniseries. Strout sticks to her winning formula: interrelated short stories linked by the presence of familiar faces. . . . In this novel—set against the backdrop of a rapidly changing Maine, ravaged by opioid addiction and economic neglect—Strout wields great pathos out of life and all its attendant tragedies.”BuzzFeed 
“Maybe you read the wonderful Olive Kitteridge—or saw the HBO series—and thought you’d had enough of Strout’s dour, prickly heroine? Guess again: Her return is a stunner.”People
“Fans of Olive Kitteridge will devour Strout’s sequel.”New York
“After a No. 1 spot on the bestseller list, the Pulitzer Prize and a TV miniseries starring Frances McDormand, Olive Kitteridge is surely the most beloved unlikable character in recent literary history. . . . This new collection of stories about Olive’s friends and family hits it out of the park.”Newsday
“Strout aims the spotlight on her wry heroine and the characters of Crosby, Maine, in another book that’s sure to have you flipping pages long into the night.”Bustle
Olive, Again returns to Olive and the town of Crosby to do what Strout does best: find meaning in the tiniest and most mundane details of everyday life.”Vox
“Olive Kitteridge is back, crustier than ever and just as unapologetic as she was when she first appeared 11 years ago. . . . Caught up in scenes of great hilarity . . . and bewildering grief, Olive may offer blunt honesty that defies societal norms, but her clarity is refreshing and never cruel. . . . Strout, who won the Pulitzer for Olive Kitteridge, wrote that Olive forced her way back into Strout’s consciousness long after the author thought she was done with her. Olive demanded Strout write these new stories. Of course Olive did that. It’s so . . . Olive. Thank goodness Olive prevailed. Exquisite.”Library Journal (starred review)
