Elizabeth Strout's new novel The Burgess Boys concerns two brothers who must return to their home town to deal with issues they thought they'd left behind.  The novel shows how extraordinary are the lives of ordinary people living ordinary lives when seen through the eyes of "a compassionate and wise story teller."  Our Book Mole Larry Bowlden compares it with Strout's earlier novel, the Pulitzer Prize winning best seller Olive Kitteridge, which Larry also reviewed on the Old Mole.
