Marilynne Robinson’s ‘Home’

It’s always nice to be confirmed in your judgements by a committe of experts, so for that reason and more I was delighted to see that Marilynne Robinson’s Home, my own Book of the Year winner for 2008, has just won the Orange Prize for fiction.  It’s a wonderful book I say again, and some describe her as the greatest living novelist.

  1. dear Warwick, hi there! Havent known Marilynne Robinson’s work before receiving ref. to her from Terry Gillmore… I’ll obviously investigate now! I had though becasue of the context of Terry’s letter that she was a poet… Best wishes, Kris Hemensley

  2. Thanks for dropping by Kris; I think you’ll enjoy Robinson’s writing; certainly poetic prose, where every line seems to matter. Best wishes to you too. Warrick

  3. I’ve read Housekeeping and Gilead, but I think Home is the best of her work. At least, the more touching for me.
    Now that I’ve finished Home, I think it’s time to go and
    read Gilead again.
