Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout
I just finished reading Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout. It's an all time favorite. I was reading a library copy, but I may have to buy it so I can enjoy it again and again. The main character has a sharp tongue and doesn't censor herself very much (and maybe I relate too clearly)! The book covers stories of 15 people and Olive is a character in each chapter. I laughed out loud at a number of sections. Very poignant commentary on aging as well.
