(First Edition, Autographed) In her Booker Prizenominated New York Times Notable Book My Name Is Lucy Barton, Elizabeth Strout gave us an honest, unforgettable heroine, looking back on memories of her Midwest hometown with a voice both keenly observant and deeply human. Not quite a sequel, this eagerly awaited companion novel takes us to Amgash, Illinois, to meet the people Lucy remembered so well. "As I was writing My Name Is Lucy Barton," Strout noted, "it came to me that all the characters Lucy and her mother talked about had their own story—of course!—and so the unfolding of their lives became tremendously important to me." Here, these characters step into the spotlight with standalone story arcs of their own, touching each other's adult lives, united by place, and challenged by the whole range of human emotions, which Strout evokes so brilliantly. We are thrilled to be able to offer this new novel in a first edition with a tipped-in page autographed by the author.
