Product Details

Praise

“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)
