In conversation with Laura Kovacs


Possessed of “a magnificent gift for humanizing characters,” (San Francisco Chronicle), Elizabeth Strout won the Pulitzer Prize for the 2008 bestseller Olive Kitteridge, a linked collection of narratives about a woman in coastal Maine. It was adapted into a multi-Emmy-winning HBO miniseries starring Frances McDormand. A PEN/Faulkner Award finalist and Orange Prize nominee, Strout also penned the novels Amy and IsabelleAbide with Me, and My Name is Lucy Barton, a no. 1 New York Times bestseller about an estranged mother and daughter’s reconnection. Written in tandem with that book, Anything is Possible is a latticework of fiction that fleshes out the lives of the inhabitants of Lucy Barton’s little town.
