Oh William!

by Elizabeth Strout

Welsome back Lucy Barton! In Oh William! Lucy reflects on her complex relationship, and intermittent friendship with her first husband, William. In quintessential Strout style, her exploration of characters and their relationships is filled with wit, wisdom and compassion. I love this author’s way of peeling back the layers of a life with such empathy and tenderness that you fall in love with even the most broken person being peeled!

Read all of her books if you can – start with Olive Kitteridge, then Olive Again, then My name is Lucy Barton, then Anything is Possible and lastly this one. Then you can move on to her stand alone novels. She is a gem.
