Novelist Elizabeth Strout may have lived in New York for over two decades, but her roots remain firmly entrenched in her home state of Maine, where her four novels have all been based. Her latest work, The Burgess Boysfocuses on a fractured family being forced to pull together after one of its members breaks the law, and how sibling dynamics can put relatives in their place long after they've moved out.
