Overview

'This short, simple, quiet novel wriggles its way right into your heart and stays there' * Red on My Name is Lucy Barton * 'Her concise writing is a masterclass in deceptive simplicity...Strout writes with an exacting rhythm, with each word and clause perfectly placed and weighted and each sentence as clear and bracing as grapefruit. It's a small masterpiece' * Daily Mail on My Name is Lucy Barton * 'My Name Is Lucy Barton is a short novel about love, particularly the complicated love between mothers and daughters... It evokes these connections in a style so spare, so pure and so profound the book almost seems to be a kind of scripture or sutra, if a very down-to-earth and unpretentious one' * Newsday on My Name is Lucy Barton * 'Slim and spectacular...My Name Is Lucy Barton is smart and cagey in every way. It is both a book of withholdings and a book of great openness and wisdom. It starts with the clean, solid structure and narrative distance of a fairy tale yet becomes more intimate and improvisational, coming close at times to the rawness of autofiction by writers such as Karl Ove Knausgaard and Rachel Cusk. Strout is playing with form here, with ways to get at a story, yet nothing is tentative or haphazard. She is in supreme and magnificent command of this novel at all times....' * Washington Post on My Name is Lucy Barton * 'This is a book you'll want to return to again and again and again' * Irish Independent on My Name is Lucy Barton * 'Hypnotic...yielding a glut of profoundly human truths to do with flight, memory and longing' * Mail on Sunday on My Name is Lucy Barton *
