Anything Is Possible
By Elizabeth Strout
What’s it about? This series of interconnected stories is set in the Midwest. Elizabeth Strout uses her razor sharp skills to shed light on our shared humanity.
What did it make me think about? How does Elizabeth Strout keep it so simple and yet impart so many universal truths? She explores in these stories how interconnected we all are, and yet how alone we are as well. How do we connect when we each have such a different sum of experiences?
Should I read it? This is a beautifully written collection of stories- each story connecting to another. I would highly recommend this book.
