  5. TV: Damien Love reveals his pick of the week's TVRead the original story w/Photo

    Sunday Dec 14 | Sunday Herald

Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning short story collection by Elizabeth Strout, it begins in the early 2000s, when we first encounter Olive in her seventies, in a startling moment; then it flips back to late 1970s, and her life as a misanthropic maths teacher in Maine, and her seemingly unlikely marriage with her upbeat pharmacist husband.
