    Hundreds of thousands of readers were enthralled by the luminous, tender voice of John Ames in Gilead, Marilynne Robinson's Pultizer Prize-winning novel. HOME is an entirely independent, deeply affecting work that takes place concurrently in the same Iowa town, this time in the household of Reverend Robert Boughton, Ames's closest friend. Glory Boughton, age 38, has returned to Gilead to care for her dying father. Soon her brother Jack - the prodigal son of the family, gone twenty years - comes home, too, looking for refuge and trying to make peace with a past strewn with trouble and pain. A moving and healing book about families, family secrets, the passing of generations, and love and death and faith.

Artful and devious in his youth, now an alcoholic carrying two decades' worth of secrets, he is perpetually at odds with his traditionalist father, though he remains his most beloved child. As Jack attempts to make peace with his father, he begins to forge an intense bond with his sister Glory, herself returning home with a broken heart and a turbulent past. 325p.

    Ever since the 1981 publication of her stunning debut Housekeeping, Marilynne Robinson has built a sterling reputation as a writer of sharp, subtly moving prose, not only as a major American novelist (her second novel Gilead, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize) but also as a rigorous thinker and incisive essayist. Her compelling and demanding collection The Death of Adam – in which she reflected on her Presbyterian upbringing investigated the roots of Midwestern abolitionism, and mounted a memorable defense of Calvinism – is respected as a classic of the genre, praised by Doris Lessing as “a useful antidote to the increasingly crude and slogan-loving culture we inhabit.” In the ten essays in this volume, Robinson returns to and expands upon the themes that have preoccupied her work with renewed vigor. Notes. 206p.
