“The more false sentences we utter, or the more false sentences that are uttered to us, the further away we get from knowing what we really feel.”
Elizabeth Strout won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Literature, she says, works for her the way religion works for others. It teaches us about ourselves and other people ... and how to live. Ms. Strout’s short stories have been published in magazines from "The New Yorker" to "O: The Oprah Magazine."
