Book Review
Olive Kitteridge is a novel that spans decades, weaving the stories of thirteen different citizens of a small coastal town in Maine. At the center of these stories is Olive herself, a sometimes deeply sympathetic, compassionate school teacher who at other times is harsh, thickheaded, and downright impossible to like. This novel explores the relationships of the townsfolk with each other, with Olive, and with the world around them, offering profound insights into the human condition.
