    The New Yorker on 'The Burgess Boys'
  • One of those rare, invigorating books that take an apparently familiar world and peer into it with ruthless intimacy, revealing a strange and startling place.

    The New York Times Book Review on 'Amy and Isabelle'
  • Strout's greatly anticipated second novel . . . is an answered prayer.

    Vanity Fair on 'Abide With Me'
  • Elizabeth Strout writes beautifully about the compromises and small joys of what we might call mature people. Delicate, nuanced, insightful, and profoundly moving, Olive Kitteridge provides exactly the pleasures and the depths of feeling that I crave when I read fiction
