Olive Kitteridge: A Novel in Stories
Olive Kitteridge might be described by some as a battle axe or as brilliantly pushy; by others as the kindest person they had ever met. Olive herself has always been certain that she is 100% correct about everything - although; lately; her certitude has been shaken. This indomitable character appears at the centre of these narratives that comprise Olive Kitteridge. In each of them; we watch Olive; a retired schoolteacher; as she struggles to make sense of the changes in her life and the lives of those around her - always with brutal honesty; if sometimes painfully. Olive will make you laugh; nod in recognition; as well as wince in pain or shed a tear or two. We meet her stoic husband; bound to her in a marriage both broken and strong; and her own son; tyrannised by Olive's overbearing sensitivities. The reader comes away; amazed by this author's ability to conjure this formidable heroine and her deep humanity that infiltrates every page.
An interesting story. Lots of short stories evolving around Olive’s life.
