Synopsis:

Returning to Gilead to care for her dying father, Glory Boughton, the daughter of John Ames's closest friend, is joined by her long-absent brother, with whom she bonds throughout his struggles with alcoholism, unemployment, and their father's traditionalist values. By a Pulitzer Prize-winning author. Reprint. 150,000 first printing. A Washington Post and Los Angeles Times Book of the Year.


Review:

"Robinson's beautiful new novel, a companion piece to her Pulitzer Prize-winning GILEAD, is an elegant variation on the parable of the prodigal son's return." (starred review)

Publishers Weekly, 06/30/2008

Review:

"HOME begins simply, eschewing obvious verbal fineness, and slowly grows in luxury--its last fifty pages are magnificently moving."

James Wood, New Yorker, 09/08/2008

Book Description: Picador September 2009, 2009. Paper Back. Book Condition: New. Marilynne Robinson's prose is nuanced, restrained, perfect; a vehicle of story that renders irrelevant the assumed boundaries between fiction and truth. In this new masterpiece ('masterpiece' is said here in plain honesty, perhaps even understatedly) the forebodings and shadows intermittently present in Gilead come into full view. The aged pastor John Ames' quietly anguished reminiscences of his friend and fellow-pastor Robert Boughton's black-sheep son Jack, in Gilead, are transformed into Jack's flesh-and-blood presence in Home. Glory, the youngest of Boughton's eight children, returned home to care for her dying father, becomes the only friend and interpreter of her tortured brother as he struggles toward the tenuous possibility of repentance and reconciliation with his family, with Ames, and the larger community. The entire drama unfolds in one household, in one very small town; yet the moral and psychological tensions exposed encompass the breadth of human and divine interaction. The issues parsed in the Calvinist-inflected theological debates briefly-visited in Gilead, become immediate-even when unspoken-as the Reverend Boughton, Ames, Jack and Glory navigate a space pregnant with hope and despair, choice and seemingly predetermined destiny. 325 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 94868
