Lucy Barton is recovering slowly from what should have been a simple operation. Her mother, to whom she hasn't spoken for many years, comes to see her. Gentle gossip about people from Lucy's childhood in Amgash, Illinois, seems to reconnect them, but just below the surface lay the tension and longing that have informed every aspect of Lucy's life: her escape from her troubled family, her desire to become a writer, her marriage, her love for her two daughters. Knitting this powerful narrative together is the brilliant storytelling voice of Lucy herself: keenly observant, deeply human, and truly unforgettable.… (mais)

Love this novel.

Beautifully stark, real and raw, and brief descriptions of poverty, neglect, emotional need, fear, loneliness and love. Its painful to read the damage hurtful people inflict on those viewed as poor, or perceived as other. And how alone we truly each are.

Lucy's sensitivity and introspection allows her to recognize other human beings who have experienced shame, loneliness or degradation without needing to know their specific stories. She also deeply respects and loves those who have protected her like a teacher who reprimanded classmates who were mocking Lucy, as well as the doctor who provided more than just excellent treatment when she was seriously ill.

Her deprived childhood lead to her strong sensitivity opened her up to recognizing, seeing and feeling beauty in people, art and literature. And made her capable of becoming successful at writing, and independent. And know when it was time to leave her marriage.

This book strikes my heart, my soul and reminds me of the strength of words. A masterpiece.

For years I have wanted to read a novel by Elizabeth Strout. I never knew where to start. Inspired by my friend Jinjer's good review I decided now to begin with Lucy Barton. And it didn't disappoint. First off, I've listened to the audiobook, narrated by Kimberly Farr. I'm not a native English speaker and not all English audiobooks I'm able to follow without problems. This here I could. Her pronunciation is very clear and accentuated and she speaks rather slow-ish (but not too slow), which fits the story. I was able to understand each and every word. Five stars to her as well.
The story starts out almost harmless. Lucy Barton has to stay in the hospital for quite a while, and one day she finds her mother sitting at her bed. Her mother that she hasn't seen or spoken to in many years. They start a rather casual conversation that goes here and there and is about people from the past they both know and how their lives have turned out. But that's just on the surface. Underneath and between the lines there's a lot to find out about Lucy's family who lived in poverty, about her difficult childhood, even about possible abuse. And although not everything what happened in that family back then is told in great detail (because Lucy, the narrator of this story, seems to maybe hold back some all too disturbing details or only hints at them), I got a sense that there must have been more to it. But at the same time she seems to try to "protect" her parents, whom she seems to love deeply, no matter the hard times she went through as a kid. This is the story of a person who has longed for the love of her parents all her life. Who has longed to hear from them that they love her. About the complicated relationship between mother and daughter. About many unsaid things. All while reading, I was thankful time and time again, that I never went through such a childhood, that I have always felt loved by my parents and that I had a mother who talked with me and told me that she loved me and taught me to be open and was always open to me. So much damage can be done to a child when it feels unloved and neglected.
This was again a book where I would have marked some parts, which really is one of the very few downsides of an audiobook. You can't put in notes or highlight passages.
Highly recommended book for sure. Thinking about what book of Elizabeth Strout I'm going to read next... ( )

I listened to this Book on cd and the reader was good. Lucy is an aspiring writer who tells her story in flashbacks that take readers into various life events with hints about her future along the way. The story telling felt realistic and was enjoyable and engaging, but not suspenseful or adventurous. ( )

Beautiful, beautiful writing. Short and poetic. I’ve read nothing like this one. Must-read. ( )

The book started to grow on me as the story was jumping around in the narrator's life, and her understated focus on AIDS, homophobia, and abuse was quite compelling. ( )

I was in Lucy Barton’s head from the very first page.

It’s rare when this happens – when the words of a book hypnotize you. The experience doesn’t feel like reading at all. It’s like falling into someone else’s consciousness...Strout’s skill in channelling Lucy’s voice is breathtaking, especially considering it’s the first time the bestselling author of Olive Kitteridge and The Burgess Boys has written a novel in the first person....This ability to love life, to notice small kindnesses, to remember the light in the sky and across the fields rather than the horrors of her childhood home, is Lucy’s salvation.

It is what we allow ourselves to see that helps us survive.
 
My Name Is Lucy Barton confirms Strout as a powerful storyteller immersed in the nuances of human relationships, weaving family tapestries with compassion, wisdom and insight. If she hadn’t already won the Pulitzer for Olive Kitteridge, this new novel would surely be a contender.
