Bagels and Books, Anything is Possible by Elizabeth Strout
Anything is Possible comprises nine interconnected short stories. Set in the fictional town of Amgash, Illinois, each story profiles different characters whose respective pasts collide with their present-day realities.
“These stories return Strout to the core of what she does more magnanimously than anyone else, which is to render quiet portraits of the indignities and disappointments of normal life, and the moments of grace and kindness we are gifted in response.” The Washington Post
The San Francisco Chronicle
