Reviews
Praise for Lucy by the Sea

"Graceful, deceptively light . . . Lucy's done the hard work of transformation. May we do the same."--The New York Times

"Lucy by the Sea has an anecdotal surface that belies a firm underlying structure. It is meant to feel like life--random, surprising, occasionally lit with flashes of larger meaning--but it is art."--The New Yorker

"No novelist working today has Strout's extraordinary capacity for radical empathy, for seeing the essence of people beyond reductive categories, for uniting us without sentimentality. I didn't just love Lucy by the Sea; I needed it. May droves of readers come to feel enlarged, comforted, and genuinely uplifted by Lucy's story."--The Boston Globe

Praise for Elizabeth Strout

"One proof of Elizabeth Strout's greatness is the sleight of hand with which she injects sneaky subterranean power into seemingly transparent prose. Strout works in the realm of everyday speech, conjuring repetitions, gaps and awkwardness with plain language and forthright diction, yet at the same time unleashing a tidal urgency that seems to come out of nowhere even as it operates in plain sight."--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

"Elizabeth Strout is one of my very favorite writers. The depth, complexity, and love contained in these pages are a miraculous achievement."--Ann Patchett

"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
