Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout

I really enjoyed this book. Olive, who lives in a small town in Maine, is a “character” of a certain age. She appears in each of 13 touching short stories laced with humor and pathos. Relationships with her family, friends and former students are imperfect, but they are always revealing and interesting. Themes of depression, love, loss and aging are all represented, and I longed for more as I finished reading the final story. This title is included in the Library Journal’s Best Books of 2008.
