Elizabeth Strout (1956- ) lived in Harpswell as a young girl. “My parents came from many generations of New Englanders, and they were skeptical of pleasure.” she told the New Yorker. She attended Syracuse University, later marrying Martin Feinman and moving to New York City. Strout taught at a community college and pursued her goal of becoming a fiction writer.
Years later, divorced from Feinman still a friend, Strout met James Tierney, a former Maine Attorney General and native of Durham. Married in 2011, they have since spent their time between New York and Brunswick. She edited The Best American Short Stories in 2013.
