Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Elizabeth Strout Has Reached Maximum Productivity

From a New York Times story by Elisabeth Egan headlined “At 66, Elizabeth Strout Has Reached Maximum Productivity”:

We met to discuss “Lucy by the Sea,” Strout’s ninth book, which follows Lucy Barton — a writer who has appeared in previous novels — through the first year of the pandemic, when she flees New York City to quarantine with her ex-husband, William, in a rented house in Maine. It has a bittersweet immediacy, as if Strout got to work the day Tom Hanks announced he’d been infected, but somehow manages to keep Covid in the back seat. Lucy Barton is at the wheel, with William riding shotgun and Strout’s voice navigating their getaway car.
