This was Elizabeth Strout s debut novel and it s remarkable to see how assured her voice already is Her trademark ability to document the trials and tribulations of ordinary people is in full flight here marking her out as a singular talent long before she went on to win a PulitzerThis story focuses on Isabelle a single mother in the small American town of Shirley Falls and her sixteen year old daughter Amy Isabelle is self conscious and lonely isolating herself from her co workers at the drab office where she works Amy is awkward and shy but she is starting to become aware of her own sexuality We realise early on that their relationship is fraught something major has occurred in the recent past which has had a profound effect on both of them And now Amy has been offered a summer job at the same office as her mother so they will spend every waking minute together The weeks that follow will change their lives foreverThe thing I like most about Elizabeth Strout s writing is the way she examines the everyday obstacles that we all encounter All of the people in this novel have some private burden to carry an overwhelming regret or longing that keeps them awake at night They lean on one another for comfort and support but there are things they can t even admit to those they hold dearest Their way of overcoming this secret torment is to battle on one day at a time and hope that things will eventually get better But what could you do Only keep going People kept going they had been doing it for thousands of years You took the kindness offered letting it seep as far in as it could go and the remaining dark crevices you carried around with you knowing that over time they might change into something bearable It s uite a familiar story yet Strout tells it with such grace and compassion In her perceptive unshowy style she explores the anxieties of motherhood and the dizzying possibilities of adolescence It may be Strout s first novel but Amy Isabelle announces a writer of rare emotional intelligence and extraordinary insight

NO SPOILERSA ruminative story about loneliness missed opportunities envy yearning and hope set in a small New England town Amy and Isabelle focuses on the complex relationship between an unassuming mother and her reticent teenage daughter Amy is the obedient respectful daughter until her 40 something substitute math teacher begins molesting her regularly When Isabelle finds out mother and daughter find their relationship suddenly strained and tense Seemingly for the first time Amy feels deep resentment even hatred toward her mother and surprisingly Isabelle realizes she feels similarly toward Amy Strout divided the narrative into two sections with one focusing on Isabelle and the other on Amy This can work very nicely allowing each character to become properly fleshed out and that happens here Isabelle and Amy are both multi dimensional with complicated feelings mainly their vulnerabilities and respective disappointments coloring everyday goings on What doesn t work so well is Isabelle s story it has less spark than Amy s Where Amy s is scandalous and bold Isabelle s is limp and depressed Each character s story mainly unfolds in the settings they spend the most time in For Isabelle this is a secretarial job in a mill For Amy this is in the local high school and all that concerns the school There s not much of interest to say about a workaday secretarial job A high school thoughthere s life there and natural drama Strout did try to infuse drama into Isabelle s work setting via a cast of co workers who sit around and gossip but the gossip is inane and the co workers uninteresting Meanwhile back in Amy s world the story is taking a shocking turn There s heartbreak in Amy and Isabelle This is something Strout did well she made this book very much a feeling book Best of all she concluded it with a uiet kind of happily ever after a conclusion promising hope and huge possibility It ends on just the right note

Reading Road Trip 2020First stop MaineLast summer as I realized yet again that a road trip across America would not take place due in part to First Daughter s chronic car sickness and the same daughter s inability to spend 5 minutes in a contained space with Second Daughter I went into a funk It has been far too long since I ve had a good road trip and I am determined to see all 50 states of this still beautiful nation before I die But despite my itch my reality has informed me that I m not going anywhere in person So why not travel the way I ve always traveled best Through booksSince this past June I ve been somewhat obsessed with compiling my itinerary I knew I wanted to start in Maine I knew I wanted my reading road trip to follow a geographic trail that would make cogent sense in a vehicle and I knew I wanted to include fiction middle grades reads and poetryI ve bugged many of you on here for titles especially if you were from a smaller state or an area that has had a smaller output of literature No offense to any residents of any particular state but it s a lot easier to find books set in New York than Nebraska if only due to populationMy impulse to start with Maine was strong three of my all time favorite writers have made the setting a famous one for me despite never having actually traveled to the state Plus with its geographic location in the far northeastern corner of the country it s a great place to beginIf I were to choose three books that bring the state of Maine to life for me they would beOne Man s Meat by EB WhiteDolores Claiborne by Stephen KingOlive Kitteridge by Elizabeth StroutSo when it came time for me to pack up my car so to speak with the necessary gear for the first part of my journey I labored greatly over who I would choose to start my literary journey A person can t hardly love EB White s writing than I do and God knows how many hours I ve spent having conversations with Stephen King in my mind read 85 books every year really Steve but when I learned that the Amy and Isabelle of Strout s recent Olive Again were two characters who had been introduced in an earlier novel called Amy and Isabelle and I didn t yet know them well I knew I needed to start with StroutElizabeth Strout excites me than any writer has since I was first introduced to JD Salinger in my youth Strout s determination to interweave her characters as Salinger once did with the Glass family has pulled all of my attention in her direction Strout writes like a writer not a woman or a man and I would like to hand her hot beverages for the rest of her life paid only by the promise of her continued career Amy and Isabelle is not her best work but it s a beauty of a book first published in 1998 and it s another complicated exploration of what we sometimes think of as generational sins The notion that despite our best intentions to do things differently than our parents we very often do the exact same thing even if we weren t aware of their foibles even if we aren t biologically related to themFor any writers reading this review whether you like Strout s writing or not there is a foreplay scene in a car midway through this novel that is truly one of the best written scenes in all of literary fiction If you ever wanted to write sex in a palpable intoxicating way I can not recommend this scene So forget the pre shrunk t shirtI went to Maine and had the best foreplay everI ll definitely return
