November 13, 2020

"Gilead," a Pulitzer Prize winning work, comes to us from the acclaimed Marilynne Robinson. It is described as a “hymn of praise and lamentation to the God-haunted existence,” that its dying narrator loves passionately. The Washington Post review writes that the author's words “have a spiritual force that’s very rare in contemporary fiction,” and observes that “… one feels touched with grace just to read it.”
