Characterization: Olive Kitteridge continued

I called my friend and told her to read my answer to her question. She did so and called back: “Yeah, that’s great, but we mortals (as opposed to Elizabeth Strout) need a likeable character. Tell us how to do it.”  I said, “I did. Ultimately we like Olive.” “Yes,” my friend concurred, “but that’s because we know her.”

Precisely! We know her.
