Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction
In 1956, toward the end of Reverend John Ames’s life, he begins a letter to his young son, a kind of last testament to his remarkable forebears.
The slow pulse of Robinson’s writing slows the reader’s eye and mind, and creates in the reading process a literary version of the narrator’s spiritual experience. Gilead reminds us that words have power to spare, to forgive, to do justice (Independent)
I loved this book. The word pictures were haunting at times. The writing was beautiful, measured and weighty. (Amazon reader review).
Please come and join us for a chat about this book ….or just books in general.
