The Burgess Boys: A Novel by Elizabeth Strout. Haunted by the freak accident that killed their father when they were children, Jim and Bob Burgess escaped from their Maine hometown of Shirley Falls for New York City as soon as they possibly could.
The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout. This is my last book to read written by Ms. Strout. This author is a great story teller, and this story is certainly a story of our times.
Read for book club. The second book I've read by this author and I love her! Great character development and interesting plot.
With a rare combination of brilliant storytelling, exquisite prose, and remarkable insight into character, The Burgess Boys is Elizabeth Strout’s newest and perhaps most astonishing work of literary art.
