"Olive Kitteridge"

6980287

A superbly subtle novel in the form of thirteen chapters each of which could stand alone as a short story and each of which reflects — in some way, shape or form — a different facet of the protagonist, Olive Kitteridge.

A book that slows you down, in a good way.

Just the ticket for a lazy weekend afternoon in late summer.
