My Name Is Lucy Barton

Производитель: "Penguin Books Ltd."

Lucy Barton is recovering slowly from what should have been a simple operation. Her mother, to whom she hasn t spoken for many years, comes to see her. Gentle gossip about people from Lucy s childhood in Amgash, Illinois, seems to reconnect them, but just below the surface lie the tension and longing that have informed every aspect of Lucy s life: her escape from her troubled family, her desire to become a writer, her marriage, her love for her two daughters. Knitting this powerful narrative together is the brilliant storytelling voice of Lucy herself: keenly observant, deeply human, and truly unforgettable. ISBN:978-0-241-24878-2

Elizabeth Strout

Elizabeth Strout is an American author. She was raised in small towns in New Hampshire and Maine. After graduating from Bates College, she spent a year in Oxford, England, followed by studies at law school for another year. In 1982 she graduated with honors, and received both a law degree from the Syracuse University College of Law and a Certificate of Gerontology from the Syracuse School of Social Work. That year her first story was published in "New Letters" magazine.

Strout moved to New York City, and continued to write stories that were published in literary magazines, as well as in "Redbook" and "Seventeen". It took her six or seven years to write "Amy and Isabelle", [ [http://www.chelseaforum.com/speakers/Strout.htm Elizabeth Strout ] ] which when published was shortlisted for the 2000 Orange Prize and nominated for the 2000 PEN/Faulkner Award for fiction. [http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/s/elizabeth-strout/ Reference for the entire bibliography, including the awards.] She was a NEH (National Endowment for the Humanities) professor at Colgate University during the Fall Semester of 2007, where she taught creative writing at both the introductory and advanced level.
