Gail Honeyman

In her 2017 debut novel, “Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine,” Scottish author Gail Honeyman introduced readers to Eleanor Oliphant, a socially awkward young woman whose personal journey involves confronting both her deep loneliness and her traumatic past. This quote by Eleanor beautifully underscores the crucial lesson she learns over the course of her self-discovery: the value of human connection and companionship. Through her character’s thoughts, Honeyman emphasizes the universal truth that even when others cannot solve our problems, their presence alone can be a source of great solace and comfort during life's most challenging moments.
