Description
Before there was Olive Kitteridge , there was Amy and Isabelle ... "A novel of shining integrity and humor, about the bravery and hard choices of what is called ordinary life."--Alice Munro Pulitzer Prize winning author Elizabeth Strout's bestselling and award winning debut, Amy and Isabelle --adapted for television by Oprah Winfrey-- evokes a teenager's alienation from her distant mother--and a parent's rage at the discovery of her daughter's sexual secrets. In most ways, Isabelle and Amy are like any mother and her 16-year-old daughter, a fierce mix of love and loathing exchanged in their every glance. That they eat, sleep, and work side by side in the gossip-ridden mill town of Shirley Falls--a location fans of Strout will recognize from her critically acclaimed novel, The Burgess Boys --only increases the tension. And just when it appears things can't get any worse, Amy's sexuality begins to unfold, causing a vast and icy rift between mother and daughter that will remain unbridgeable unless Isabelle examines her own secretive and shameful past. A Reader's Guide is included in the paperback edition of this powerful first novel by the author who brought Olive Kitteridge to millions of readers.
