by Marilynne Robinson - £8.99 Little, Brown Book Group (2013)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781844087723 | ISBN 10: 1844087727
From the author of the magnificent, award-winning novels Gilead and Home comes this, a collection of wonderful, heart-warming essays about reading.
Of Marilynne Robinson, Michael Arditti said that there is 'no contemporary novelist whose work I would rather read' However she is not only a writer of sharp, subtly moving prose, but also a rigorous thinker and incisive essayist. In this luminous new collection she returns to the themes which have preoccupied her bestselling novels: the place literature has in life, the role of faith in modern living, the contradictions inherent in human nature. Clear-eyed and forceful as ever, Robinson demonstrates once again why she is regarded as one of our best-loved writers.
