My Name is Lucy Barton

My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout, 193 pages

This is not an easy book to describe. It bounces around in time, with the titular character reflecting on a weeks-long stint in the hospital, her relationship with her parents, her career as an author, her childhood, and other things in life. Yes, that's a horrible description of what is a truly interesting book. Strout created a fully real person in Lucy, in part because of her meandering thoughts. It's well worth reading.
