Reviews

"American culture is enriched by having the whole range of Marilynne Robinson's work" --Jane Vanderburgh, The Boston Globe

"A valuable contribution to American life and letters." --Kathleen Norris

"A useful antidote to the increasingly crude and slogan-loving culture we inhabit." --Doris Lessing

"Robinson's thinking is all in the service of humanity's survival, spiritually and environmentally." --Charles Baxter

"One of Robinson's great merits as an essayist is her refusal to take her opinions secondhand. Her book is a goad to renewed curiosity." --The New York Times Book Review
