Mi chiamo Lucy Barton, Elizabeth Strout

Le Ragazze Perbene

Su questa storia si incastra l’inizio della carriera da scrittrice di Lucy, influenzata dall’incontro casuale con la scrittrice Sarah Payne e dal corso di scrittura tenuto dalla stessa in Arizona, che ammonisce i suoi allievi ricordando che “Ciascuno di voi ha soltanto una storia.

Elizabeth Strout L'82: Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author

'Cuse Conversations

From an early age, Elizabeth Strout L'82 was fascinated with seeing life through someone else's perspective, so it's no surprise she envisioned a career in writing, penning works of fiction as a teenager. Upon arrival at Syracuse University's College of Law, Strout aspired to be a lawyer during the day and an author at night. While her legal career was short-lived after graduating cum laude from Syracuse, Strout's writing career has taken off. An accomplished and acclaimed novelist, Strout's books have garnered major literary awards, including a Pulitzer Prize for "Olive Kitteridge" in 2008, which was adapted into an Emmy Award-winning mini-series starring Frances McDormand. Strout discusses how she creates her characters and the authors who inspire her, reveals how she was virtually the last person to know about the Pulitzer Prize, and shares how Syracuse shaped her development both as a person and as an author by teaching her to think differently.

Elizabeth Strout: Olive Kitteridge

World Book Club

This month’s World Book Club is the ninth in our series celebrating the greatest women writers at work across the globe. Harriett Gilbert and listeners from around the world talk to the world-renowned American author Elizabeth Strout at her home in New Brunswick, Maine, in the USA. The novel under discussion is her internationally-garlanded Olive Kitteridge: a novel made up of 13 luminous short stories set in small-town Maine and bound together by one larger-than-life character, the flawed and fascinating Olive Kitteridge. Retired school teacher and long-time wife of the long-suffering Henry, Olive struggles to make sense of the changes in her life and the lives of those around her. Her travails, at once parochial but also universal, make readers laugh, nod in recognition, as well as wince in pain.(Picture: Elizabeth Strout. Photo credit: Leonard Cendamo.)
