From the Booker Prize-winning author of the monumental THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS, this novel brings unforgettable characters caught up in the tide of history. Told with a whisper, a shout, with tears and laughter, it is a love story and a provocation. Its heroes, present and departed, human and animal, have been broken by the world and then mended by love - and for this, they will never surrender.

Anything is possible

Elizabeth Strout

€ 17,95
Reverberating with the deep bonds of family, and the hope that comes with reconciliation, Anything Is Possible again underscores bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout's place as one of America's most respected and cherished authors.

If you liked My Name Is Lucy Barton then you just have to read Anything Is Possible. This excellent book is a sequel to Lucy Barton and contains interlocking stories from Lucy’s home town (Amgash, Illinois) and the people that make up that town. The stories are about the people Lucy and her mother talked about in Lucy Barton and who knew Lucy when she was a little girl.

Lucy is remembered as a child of poverty who moved away as an adult and became a successful writer. She is looked up to and at the same time despised by the townspeople who are her friends, family, and former enemies.  Lucy now has got it all. But the people who stayed behind are still marked by poverty, abuse, loneliness, and loveless lives.

Elizabeth Strout’s honesty is unsettling, moving and very powerful. Anything Is Possible is an outstanding novel!
