My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As a writer, the most sought-after praise I would want is for my work to be called ‘clever’ – and Olive Kitteridge is exactly that – CLEVER!
A collection of short stories that looks no further than in the windows (sometimes pulling aside the closed drapes!) of the title character and her neighbors, Olive Kitteridge makes me believe that there’s still a place for smart literature among the overstocked shelves of terrorist thrillers, paranormal romance and chic lit.
Simplicity in words is beautiful when the emotions they evoke are anything but.
