Vuelve la icónica Lucy Barton en esta deslumbrante novela sobre el amor, la pérdida y la esperanza.
A medida que el miedo se apodera de su ciudad, Lucy Barton abandona Manhattan y se confina en un pueblo de Maine con su exmarido, William. Durante los siguientes meses quedarán ellos dos, compañeros después de tantos años, a solas con su complejo pasado en una pequeña casa junto a un mar impetuoso, una experiencia de la que saldrán transformados.

Con una voz imbuida de una «humanidad íntima, frágil y desesperada» (The Washington Post) Elizabeth Strout explora los entresijos del corazón humano en un retrato revolucionario y luminoso de las relaciones personales durante un periodo de aislamiento. En el centro de esta historia se encuentran los profundos lazos que nos unen incluso cuando estamos separados: el dolor ante el sufrimiento de una hija, el vacío tras la muerte de un ser querido, la promesa de una amistad incipiente y el consuelo de un antiguo amor que aún perdura.


NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From Pulitzer Prize–winning author Elizabeth Strout comes a poignant, pitch-perfect novel about a divorced couple stuck together during lockdown—and the love, loss, despair, and hope that animate us even as the world seems to be falling apart.

“No novelist working today has Strout’s extraordinary capacity for radical empathy. . . . May droves of readers come to feel enlarged, comforted, and genuinely uplifted by Lucy’s story.”—The Boston Globe

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: The New York Times Book Review, The New Yorker, Oprah Daily, Entertainment Weekly, San Francisco Chronicle, NPR, Time, The Washington Post, The Christian Science Monitor, PopSugar, She Reads

With her trademark spare, crystalline prose—a voice infused with “intimate, fragile, desperate humanness” (The Washington Post)—Elizabeth Strout turns her exquisitely tuned eye to the inner workings of the human heart, following the indomitable heroine of My Name Is Lucy Barton through the early days of the pandemic.

As a panicked world goes into lockdown, Lucy Barton is uprooted from her life in Manhattan and bundled away to a small town in Maine by her ex-husband and on-again, off-again friend, William. For the next several months, it’s just Lucy, William, and their complex past together in a little house nestled against the moody, swirling sea.

Rich with empathy and emotion, Lucy by the Sea vividly captures the fear and struggles that come with isolation, as well as the hope, peace, and possibilities that those long, quiet days can inspire. At the heart of this story are the deep human connections that unite us even when we’re apart—the pain of a beloved daughter’s suffering, the emptiness that comes from the death of a loved one, the promise of a new friendship, and the comfort of an old, enduring love.
