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.… (mere)

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. Her unexpected visit forces Lucy to confront the tension and longing that have informed every aspect of her life: her impoverished childhood in Amgash, Illinois, her escape to New York and her desire to become a writer, her faltering 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. In My Name Is Lucy Barton, one of America's finest writers shows how a simple hospital visit illuminates the most tender relationship of all-the one between mother and daughter. ( )

Well, Lucy Barton is no Olive. Both her often referenced attachment to her young daughters and her internalized affections for those she describes interactions with distance me from her. ( )

Found this simple story a bit too ordinary, a collection of musings that I might have had myself. Although well-constructed, I didn't feel any attachment to the characters or the storyline. The comment about the author in the story being "too sympathetic" felt like a description of this novel. Just nice. ( )

(55) I typically enjoy Strout's books because her story-telling is so great. But in this novel, Strout does not follow a typical narrative path and instead it is just a series of musings regarding a woman's relationship with her mother in the context of a long hospital stay. It is disjointed and oblique and the sentence structure is purposefully short and emotionless - I guess mimicking some modernist-type writers like Hemmingway. But for me it took away all I have held dear about Strout's previous writing. Botton line - I thought this was pretentious.

The novel hinted at some abuse Lucy Barton suffered as a child, but never bothers to give the reader the courtesy of revealing. In addition, it was never really clear why there was such an estrangement between Lucy and her parents. Lucy's mother's actions were inexplicable towards the end and while this may be like life, it sure is unsatisfying in a novel. In my opinion, we read fiction to help us make sense of reality; we don't read fiction to have the same sense of confusion and ambivalence that pervades the lived experience.

I know she has a new novel which is a spin-off of this one which is why I read it - but I am not sure I am going to read it if this style is perpetuated. It does not suit a writer who has the ability to write exquisitely about the human condition as in her 'Olive Kitteridge' novels. If she were responding to critics who said she was too sentimental (I might have been one of them,) it is not worth the loss of the vitality. Definitely not my favorite of hers; forgettable. ( )

This was a series of free associations beginning when Lucy Barton was hospitalized for several weeks due to complications from an appendectomy. She was married to William and had two children, Chrissy and Becka. She pursued being a writer. She was raised in poverty in Amgash, Illinois, with parents who she saw as less than loving although she seems to have loved them. Her story is told through flashbacks surrounding her time in hospital. I did not enjoy this book and cannot see what others saw in it. ( )

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.
