Amy and IsabelleBy Elizabeth Strout
Elizabeth Strout speaks with Bookwitty in Paris. “My father was a lovely man,” she tells us, “But I remember him saying to me ‘less talk, less talk’.”
Both Elizabeth Strout’s My Name is Lucy Barton and Deborah Levy’s Hot Milk delve into the complicated psychological terrain of the mother/daughter relationship. Both made the 2016 Man Booker Prize longlist, one is now on the shortlist.
