The Burgess Boys

New Yorker Radio Hour: Elizabeth Strout’s View from the Top

A couple weeks ago, I climbed to the top of Mount David with the New Yorker Radio Hour, a place I visited almost every month when I was in school at Bates College.

It was like ancient history to be there and remember! I’d never talked about Mount David to anyone, but it was such an important part of who I became.

Microcosmi americani

For my Italian readers, with thanks to Festivaletteratura and Piero Dorfles.

In generale i romanzi della Strout affiancano alla dimensione sociologica quella psicologica e privata ma anche realtà più ampie, come quella politica e sociale; per questa ragione hanno fatto breccia nel pubblico americano, soprattutto femminile, che si è sentito totalmente rispecchiato nelle numerose donne della scrittrice.
