(Winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and named one of the Best Books of the Year by the Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, and Chicago Tribune) With Olive Kitteridge, Elizabeth Strout gives us one of the great titular characters of modern fiction, which inspired a sparkling, Emmy Award–winning HBO miniseries starring Frances McDormand. Variously stern and patient, perceptive and in sad denial, the retired schoolteacher deplores the changes in her little town of Crosby, Maine, and in the greater world, but Olive doesn't always recognize the changes in those around her—from former students to her grown child, and her own husband.

"Funny, wicked and remorseful, Mrs. Kitteridge is a compelling life force, a red-blooded original. When she's not onstage, we look forward to her return. This book is a page-turner because of her."—SFChronicle
