Deze zag ik niet aankomen. Ik had de lectuur van dit boek al een paar keer uitgesteld want de titel, met die naam, leek me een stationsromannetje te suggereren. Hoe meer verkeerd kon ik zijn? Elizabeth Strout is een verdomd intelligente schrijfster: ze voert haar hoofdpersonage meestal via omwegen ten tonele, langs de andere families die in het kleine kuststadje Crosby, in Maine, wonen, allemaal mensen die worstelen met de kleine en grote dingen van het leven. Maar af en toe komt Olive in beeld, soms gewoon op de achtergrond, soms iets prominenter. Knap gedaan. Ik denk nu dat Rachel Cusk met haar Outline-trilogie eigenlijk dit proçédé (protagonist komt alleen via anderen in beeld) gewoon een stapje verder heeft gezet.
En dan Olive zelf, die stuurse, botte en mensenschuwe vrouw, die – zo blijkt in de loop van de roman – wél tot menselijke gevoelens in staat is. En die zelf ook haar deel van de menselijke tragiek te verwerken krijgt en haar op haar eigen manier mee om gaat. Om het maar direct-Amerikaans te zeggen: ze lijkt me wel de antiheld bij uitstek, en dat in een maatschappij waar het ogenschijnlijk alleen maar om succes lijkt te draaien.
Ingenieus is ook de manier waarop Strout enkele zwaarwegende thema’s aanbrengt: de fundamentele eenzaamheid van de individuele mens, de worsteling met eenvoudige gevoelens zoals het verlangen naar kleinkinderen, het trauma van zelfmoord in je directe omgeving, van ziekte en dood van geliefden, kortom het ouder worden. En opvallend toch wel ook het trauma van de moeilijke omgang met moeders: uit Olive’s rake opmerkingen is op te maken dat ze ongeveer alle karakteriële problemen van mensen reduceert tot moederbinding-ervaringen. Dat intrigeert.
Om maar te zeggen dat deze roman helemaal niet luchtig is. Hij deed me zelfs aan James Salter denken (vooral diens Light Years), maar dan minder donker, met veel meer gevoel voor humor, en een grote brok empathie en mededogen voor de kleinheid van de mens. Knap wat Strout hier gedaan heeft. ( )

I listened this audiobook in two parts (I had to listen to something in between) which was not ideal. I think I would have enjoyed the book more had I read it, I might try Strout in paper next time. As an audiobook, this did not come across to me as a collection of short stories, maybe I just wasn't concentrating enough. I liked it, though, and will definitely read more Strout. ( )

Olive is not a particularly likeable character but she is vivacious, kind when least expected and unpredictable in a way that keeps the reader guessing as to why she reacts the way she does. Beyond a cast of great characters - all profoundly human in their failings and accomplishments - what makes this book great is its construction: a series of short stories interwoven deftly around Olive and her village of Crosby, Maine, a miniature Comédie humaine like a delightful American wink to Balzac.
Where Olive might not conquer the reader's heart, there is a story that will, whether it's Christopher's willingness to grow and change, Angela's sudden insight or Bob's hurtful secret... all are carefully crafted which makes the ordinary seem important. ( )

Comprised of thirteen short stories with varying narratives, Strout cleverly tells the story of Olive Kitteridge. Olive is lurking in most of each connecting tale. Sometimes characters gossip about her, like in the story called "Winter Concert." In the first story "Pharmacy" Olive's husband, Henry Kitteridge, doesn't seem to have a happy life since he retired from his old fashioned pharmacy. Olive is presented as a woman who doesn't suffer fools easily. She shows the world an angry and proud face most of the time. I think they call it "Yankee stoicism." Other stories:
"Incoming Tide" - Olive is present when a woman tries to commit suicide.
"The Piano Player" - Angela O'Meara plays the piano for ungrateful guests.
"A Little Burst" - Olive's only son is getting married to a woman she doesn't like.
"Starving" - Harmon is starving in his marriage while he befriends a girl with anorexia.
"A Different Road" - a couple are victims of a crime by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Winter Concert" - A couple attends a concert where the wife learns of her husband's secret rendezvous.
"Tulips" - bitterness.
"A Basket of Trips" - a death cuts a marriage short.
"Ship in a Bottle" - a girl is stood up on her wedding day.
"Security" - Olive tries to visit her son in New York; a story about expectations.
"Criminal" - the story of a neurotic kleptomaniac.
"River" - My favorite story of the the bunch. Olive is a widow and learning to be polite. ( )

Each of the 13 tales serves as an individual microcosm of small-town life, with its gossip, small kindnesses, and everyday tragedies. Not all the minor characters stand out the way Henry and Olive do, and there are a pile of them to keep straight by the end. I also couldn’t quite place how one story, “Ship in a Bottle,” meshed with the rest. But those are small flaws far outweighed by the book’s compassion and intelligence.
 
The pleasure in reading “Olive Kitteridge” comes from an intense identification with complicated, not always admirable, characters. And there are moments in which slipping into a character’s viewpoint seems to involve the revelation of an emotion more powerful and interesting than simple fellow feeling—a complex, sometimes dark, sometimes life-sustaining dependency on others.

For many years Henry Kitteridge was a pharmacist in the next town over, driving every morning on snowy roads, or rainy roads, or summertime roads, when the wild raspberries shot their new growth in brambles along the last section of town before he turned off to where the wider road led to the pharmacy.

Olive had sat in her bedroom and wept like a baby, not so much for this country but for the city itself, which had seemed to her to become suddenly no longer a foreign, hardened place, but as fragile as a class of kindergarten children, brave in their terror.
She showed him the library built the year before Henry's stroke, with its cathedral ceiling and skylights. He looked at the books, and she wanted to say, "Stop that," as though he were reading her diary.
Who, who, does not have their basket of trips.
He wanted to put his arms around her, but she had a darkness that seemed to stand beside her like an acquaintance that would not go away. – "Pharmacy"
Angie... felt she had figured something out too late, and that must be the way of life, to get something figured out when it was too late. – "The Piano Player"
