My Name is Lucy Barton, Elizabeth Strout

35 AUD
An exquisite new novel from the Pulitzer prize-winning author of Olive Kitteridge.

A mother comes to visit her daughter in hospital after having not seen her in many years. Her unexpected visit forces Lucy to confront her past, uncovering long-buried memories of a profoundly impoverished childhood; and her present, as the fa├žade of her new life in New York begins to crumble, awakening her to the reality of her faltering marriage and her unsteady journey towards becoming a writer.

From Lucy's hospital bed, we are drawn ever more deeply into the emotional complexity of family life, the inescapable power of the past, and the memories - however painful - that bind a family together. My Name Is Lucy Barton is a tender expression of the meaning of familial love from one of America's finest writers.
