Publisher's Summary

Summary of My Name Is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout | Includes Analysis

Preview:

My Name Is Lucy Barton tells the story of the title character and her relationship with her family, particularly her mother and first husband. It considers the perception of poverty by those who live both inside and outside of it. Much of the story takes place in a hospital in New York City, where Lucy Barton goes to have her appendix removed. Instead of going straight home, Lucy becomes ill and remains in the hospital for nearly nine weeks.

Lucy was born into poverty and grew up with her mother, father, older brother, and older sister in the garage of her uncle's home. She didn't have loving relationships with her parents or her siblings. They lived in isolation both physically, as they had no neighbors, and culturally, as they did not have a television, newspapers, or magazines in their home. As a result of her isolation, Lucy often felt socially awkward for not understanding cultural references or not always knowing how to act in certain social situations....
