A look behind the closed door…many doors….many lives….all intertwined in Crosby, Maine, as small as a Maine fishing community gets. Olive Kitteridge is story of the young and foolish and of the crusty and stubborn. A novel of worn out love dying the death of boredom but then flushed with moments of unthinkable, improbable excitement in the dwindling daylight of Maine’s long winters . Elizabeth Strout offers a full menu of characters afflicted by nearly all of modern life’s life’s travails. The novel was deemed worthy of Pulitzer following its 2008 Publication.
