Description
In her long-awaited return after the brilliant success of her 2009 Pulitzer Prize winner Olive Kitteridge, Elizabeth Strout gives us this powerful, illuminating novel about two brothers and the ties that bind us to family and home. Haunted by the accident that killed their father when they were young, Jim and Bob Burgess fled their Maine hometown as soon as they could for legal careers in New York City. Though Jim, now a successful corporate lawyer, has always belittled his brother, bighearted Bob has always taken it in stride, and still idolizes Jim. But their long-standing dynamic will soon be upended, after their sister Susan—the Burgess who stayed behind—calls them back to Maine to defend her son Zack, a lonely teenager who has gotten into a world of trouble.

"No one should be surprised by the poignancy and emotional vigor of Elizabeth Strout's new novel. But the broad social and political range of The Burgess Boys shows just how impressively this extraordinary writer continues to develop."—Washington Post

"What truly makes Strout exceptional—and her latest supple and penetrating novel so profoundly affecting—is the perfect balance she achieves between the tides of story and depths of feeling.... Every element in Strout's graceful, many-faceted novel is keenly observed, lustrously imagined and trenchantly interpreted."—Chicago Tribune

"Elizabeth Strout's first two books, Abide with Me and Amy and Isabelle, were highly thought of, and her third, Olive Kitteridge, won the Pulitzer Prize in fiction. But The Burgess Boys, her most recent novel, is her best yet."—Boston Globe
