Description

WINNER OF THE ORANGE PRIZE o OPRAH'S BOOK CLUB PICK o NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST

Glory Boughton has returned to Gilead to care for her dying father. soon her brother, Jack--the prodigal son of the family, gone for twenty years--comes home too, looking for refuge and trying to make peace with a past littered with torment and pain.

A troubled boy from childhood, an alcoholic who cannot hold a job, Jack is one of the great characters in recent literature. He is perpetually at odds with his surroundings and with his traditionalist father, though he remains Reverend Boughton's most beloved child. Brilliant, beguiling, lovable and wayward, Jack forges an intense new bond with Glory and engages painfully with John Ames, his godfather and namesake.

Home is a moving and healing book about families, family secrets and the passing of the generations, about love and death and faith. It is arguably Marilynne Robinson's greatest work, an unforgettable embodiment of the deepest and most universal emotions.
