$220.00

Marilynne Robinson is one of the most acclaimed novelists of the last 100 years. Her fiction is noted for its richness of character, captured through immersive voices and tactful details. She often addresses themes of faith, rural communities, and working-class life. For several decades, she also taught at the prestigious Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Housekeeping and Gilead are her two most celebrated novels–the latter winning her the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Yet Housekeeping is no less praised. It is often cited as one of the best novels of the late-twentieth century. It follows Ruthie and her younger sister as they are raised (and abandoned) by several family members in rural Idaho. As the novel progresses, Ruthie is swept up by her eccentric aunt Sylvie in ways that elucidate the theme: housekeeping, not just as tending to the physical aspects of the home, but also the spiritual and the familial. It remains a classic of American fiction. It is one of Robinson’s greatest contributions.
