Reviews

Praise for Oh William!

"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)

Praise for Elizabeth Strout

"[Strout] illuminates both what people understand about others and what they understand about themselves."--The New York Times Book Review

"Strout managed to make me love this strange woman I'd never met, who I knew nothing about. What a terrific writer she is."--Zadie Smith

"Strout animates the ordinary with an astonishing force. . . . [She] makes us experience not only the terrors of change but also the terrifying hope that change can bring: she plunges us into these churning waters and we come up gasping for air."--The New Yorker

"Writing of this quality comes from a commitment to listening, from a perfect attunement to the human condition, from an attention to reality so exact that it goes beyond a skill and becomes a virtue."--Hilary Mantel

"Reading an Elizabeth Strout novel is like peering into your neighbor's windows. . . . There is a nuanced tension in the novel, evoked by beautiful and detailed writing. Strout's manifestations of envy, pride, guilt, selflessness, bigotry and love are subtle and spot-on."--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Strout is a brilliant chronicler of the ambiguity and delicacy of the human condition."--The Guardian
