An unforgettable cast of small-town characters copes with love and loss in a novel from the No. 1 New York Times bestselling and Man Booker long-listed author of My Name is Lucy Barton
Recalling Olive Kitteridge in its richness, structure, and complexity, Anything Is Possible explores the whole range of human emotion through the intimate dramas of people struggling to understand themselves and others.

Anything is Possible tells the story of the inhabitants of rural, dusty Amgash, Illinois, the hometown of Lucy Barton, a successful New York writer who finally returns, after seventeen years of absence, to visit the siblings she left behind. Reverberating with the deep bonds of family, and the hope that comes with reconciliation, Anything Is Possible again underscores Elizabeth Strout's place as one of America's most respected and cherished authors.

‘There is, in every chapter, a wrenching, beautiful dissonance between private desires and public obligations… Strout is a brilliant chronicler of the human condition. Anything is Possible is a wise, stunning novel.’ - The Observer

Born in Portland, Maine, Elizabeth Strout has spent her early life in New England before moving to New York. Justly considered one of America’s finest living writers, she won a Pulitzer Prize for her third novel Olive Kitteridge which was subsequently made into an award-winning drama by HBO.
