About the Author
MARILYNNE ROBINSON is the author of the novels Gilead, Housekeeping, and two books of nonfiction, Mother Country and The Death of Adam. She teaches at the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop.
"Remarkable . . . an even stronger accomplishment than Gilead." --Claire Messud, The New York Review of Books"An exquisite, often ruefully funny meditation on redemption." --Megan O'Grady, Vogue "An anguished pastoral, a tableau of decency and compassion that is also an angry and devastating indictment of moral cowardice and unrepentant, unacknowledged sin. . . . . Beautiful." --A. O. Scott, The New York Times Book Review "Rich and resonant . . . Gilead and Home fit with and around each other perfectly, each complete on its own, yet enriching and enlivening the other. But both are books of such beauty and power." --Emily Barton, Los Angeles Times "Marilynne Robinson is so powerful a writer that she can reshape how we read." --Mark Athitakis, Chicago Sun-Times "Home begins simply, eschewing obvious verbal fineness, and slowly grows in luxury--its last fifty pages are magnificently moving. . . . Powerful." --James Wood, The New Yorker "When Marilynne Robinson writes a new book, it's an event." --Pat MacEnulty, Charlotte Observer
