Description

A moving book about families, about love and death and faith, Marilynne Robinson’s Home is considered a masterpiece.

Jack Boughton – prodigal son – has been gone twenty years. He returns home seeking refuge and to make peace with the past. A bad boy from childhood, an alcoholic who cannot hold down a job, Jack is perpetually at odds with his surroundings and with his traditionalist father, though he remains Boughton’s most beloved child. His sister Glory has also returned, fleeing her own mistakes, to care for their dying father

‘A luminous, profound and moving piece of writing. There is no contemporary American novelist whose work I would rather read.’ Independent

‘Her novels are replete with a sense of felt life, with a deep and abiding sympathy for her characters and a full understanding of their inner lives.’ Colm Toibin
