An extraordinary new novel by the Pulitzer Prize-winning, Number One New York Times bestselling author of Olive Kitteridge and My Name is Lucy Barton 'A terrific writer' Zadie Smith 'A superbly gifted storyteller and a craftswoman in a league of her own' Hilary Mantel 'A novel to treasure' Sunday Times Olive, Again follows the blunt, contradictory yet deeply loveable Olive Kitteridge as she grows older, navigating the second half of her life as she comes to terms with the changes - sometimes welcome, sometimes not - in her own existence and in those around her. Olive adjusts to her new life with her second husband, challenges her estranged son and his family to accept him, experiences loss and loneliness, witnesses the triumphs and heartbreaks of her friends and neighbours in the small coastal town of Crosby, Maine - and, finally, opens herself to new lessons about life. 'A powerful storyteller immersed in the nuances of human relationships' Observer 'She gets better with each book' Maggie O'Farrell 'Her writing is exquisite; her vision is boundless.

Compassionate, masterly and profound, this is a writer at the height of her powers * Observer * Elizabeth Strout is... one of the undisputed heavyweights of generous, clear-eyed domestic realism * Daily Mail * In Olive Kitteridge, Strout has created one of those rare characters...so vivid and humorous they seems to take on a life independent of the story framing them * Guardian * A perfect novel * Financial Times * Glorious * The Times * A novel to treasure... Olive, Again, like Strout's first book, delivers roughly five hours of spine-tingling pleasure. There is plenty of sadness in her characters' lives, but there's also something quite intoxicating, almost enjoyable about their heartache. Refreshing in its honesty, it's a book that never strays from the deepest concerns of the heart. * Sunday Times * Her writing is exquisite; her vision is boundless. What a sublim
