Elizabeth Strout's protagonist Olive Kitteridge has spent her entire life in the fictional town of Crosby, Maine.

In 2008, author Elizabeth Strout introduced readers to Olive Kitteridge and her hometown, the fictional Crosby, Maine. Olive is stubborn, self-centered, empathetic, and loving. In all her contradictions and complications, readers found her fascinating (and sometimes infuriating).

Now Olive is back, navigating growing old and reflecting on her life.

Elizabeth Strout’s new book is called simply, “Olive, Again.” This is Strout’s seventh novel. In 2009, Strout won the Pulitzer Prize for “Olive Kitteridge.”
