Críticas:

Praise for Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer Prize-winning "Olive Kitteridge"

"Perceptive, deeply empathetic . . . Olive is the axis around which these thirteen complex, relentlessly human narratives spin themselves into Elizabeth Strout's unforgettable novel in stories.""--O: The Oprah Magazine "
" "
"Fiction lovers, remember this name: Olive Kitteridge. . . . You'll never forget her. . . . [Strout] constructs her stories with rich irony and moments of genuine surprise and intense emotion. . . . Glorious, powerful stuff.""--USA Today"
" "
"Funny, wicked and remorseful, Mrs. Kitteridge is a compelling life force, a red-blooded original. When she's not onstage, we look forward to her return. The book is a page-turner because of her.""--San Francisco Chronicle"
" "
"Deeply human . . . Though loneliness and loss haunt these pages, Strout also supplies gentle humor and a nourishing dose of hope."--"Booklist" (starred review)
" "
""Olive Kitteridge" still lingers in memory like a treasured photograph.""--Seattle Post-Intelligencer"
" "
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY
"The Washington Post Book World - USA Today - San Francisco Chronicle - Chicago Tribune - Seattle Post-Intelligencer - People - Entertainment Weekly - The Christian Science Monitor - The Plain Dealer - The Atlantic - Rocky Mountain News - Library Journal"

"No one should be surprised by the poignancy and emotional vigor of Elizabeth Strout's new novel. But the broad social and political range of "The Burgess Boys" shows just how impressively this extraordinary writer continues to develop. . . . She's particularly adept at subverting our prejudices, complicating our easy judgments of people we think we know. . . . There seems no limit to her sympathy, her ability to express, without the acrid tone of irony, our selfish, needy anxieties that only family can aggravate--and quell."--Ron Charles, "The Washington Post"
" "
"Strout conveys what it feels like to be an outsider very well, whether she's delving into the quiet inner lives of Somalis in Shirley Falls or showing how the Burgess kids got so alienated from one another. But the details are so keenly observed, you can connect with the characters despite their apparent isolation. . . . [A] gracefully written novel. [Grade: ] A."--"Entertainment Weekly"
" "
"Strout deftly exposes the tensions that fester among families. But she also takes a broader view, probing cultural divides. . . . Illustrating the power of roots, Strout assures us we can go home again--though we may not want to."--"O: The Oprah Magazine"
" "
"Wincingly funny, moving, wise."--"Good Housekeeping"
" "
"With her signature lack of sentimentality, a boatload of clear-eyed compassion and a penetrating prose style that makes the novel riveting, Strout tells the story of one Maine family, transformed. Again and again, she identifies precisely the most complex of filial emotions while illuminating our relationships to the larger families we all belong to: a region, a city, America and the world."--"More"
" "
""The Burgess Boys" returns to coastal Maine [with] a grand unifying plot, all twists and damage and dark, morally complex revelations. . . . The grand scale suits Strout, who now adds impresario storytelling at book length to the Down East gift for plainspoken wisdom."

"Elizabeth Strout's first two books, "Abide with Me "and" Amy and Isabelle, "were highly thought of, and her third, "Olive Kitteridge, "won the Pulitzer Prize in fiction. But "The Burgess Boys, "her most recent novel, is her best yet.""--The Boston Globe"
" "
"No one should be surprised by the poignancy and emotional vigor of Elizabeth Strout's new novel. But the broad social and political range of "The Burgess Boys" shows just how impressively this extraordinary writer continues to develop."--"The Washington Post"
" "
"Strout's greatest gift as a writer, outside a diamond-sharp precision that packs 320 fast-paced pages full of insight, is her ability to let the reader in on all the rancor of her characters without making any of them truly detestable. . . . Strout creates a portrait of an American community in turmoil that's as ambitious as Philip Roth's "American Pastoral" but more intimate in tone."--"Time"
"What truly makes Strout exceptional--and her latest supple and penetrating novel so profoundly affecting--is the perfect balance she achieves between the tides of story and depths of feeling. . . . Every element in Strout's graceful, many-faceted novel is keenly observed, lustrously imagined and trenchantly interpreted.""--Chicago Tribune"

"[Strout's] extraordinary narrative gifts are evident again. . . . At times ["The Burgess Boys "is] almost effortlessly fluid, with superbly rendered dialogue, sudden and unexpected bolts of humor and . . . startling riffs of gripping emotion."--Associated Press

Strout s prose propels the story forward with moments of startlingly poetic clarity. The New Yorker
