What is it about Charly?

I’m looking forward to reading it and seeing what happens to Olive next. I’m just waiting for prices to drop. I’m a fan of Elizabeth Strout and don’t think I’ve ever read a book of hers I didn’t enjoy.

For anyone not familiar with the author I think she’s comparable to the early books of Anne Tyler.

I adore Anne Tyler books so I must look these up.

Yes, I read it-

For the miniseries, Olive Kitteridge, they couldn't have picked a better actor to play her!

Olive Kitteridge was my number one book of last year, I’m really looking forward to meeting her again.

Sorry, being dim here! What is the link to beteavement?

I don’t think there is one. It’s just accidentally in the wrong category I think.

Has Charly not returned to see the answers ? I asked what the book is about but did not get an answer sad
