Ruth Keeler Library: Bagels & Books
Anything is Possible comprises nine interconnected short stories. Set in the fictional town of Amgash, Illinois, each story profiles different characters whose respective pasts collide with their present-day realities.
“These stories return Strout to the core of what she does more magnanimously than anyone else, which is to render quiet portraits of the indignities and disappointments of normal life, and the moments of grace and kindness we are gifted in response.” The Washington Post
“In its entirety, Anything Is Possible is both sweeping in scope and incredibly introspective. That delicate balance is what makes its content so sharp and compulsively readable. In fact, one might say that this — Strout’s winning formula — has succeeded once again. With assuredness, compassion and utmost grace, her words and characters remind us that in life anything is actually possible. The highs. The lows. And everything in between.”
