ANew York TimesBestseller AWashington PostBest Book of the Year ALos Angeles TimesBest Book of the Year ASan Francisco ChronicleBest Book of the YearOne of America's most acclaimed authors, Marilynne Robinson, revisits the characters from her Pulitzer Prize-winningGilead, in this "impossibly rich and beautiful new novel" (San Francisco Chronicle)Glory Boughton, aged thirty-eight, has returned to Gilead to care for her dying father, Reverend Robert Boughton. Soon her brother, Jack--the prodigal son of the family, gone for twenty years--comes home too, looking for refuge, and to make peace with his turbulent past. When he was a child he gained a reputation as artful and devious; as a young man he brought continual shame to the family; and now, an alcoholic who cannot hold a job, he is perpetually at odds with his surroundings and with his traditionalist father--though he remains Boughton's most beloved child. Jack forges an intense bond with Glory and engages painfully with Ames, his godfather and namesake, and the narrator of Robinson's previous novelGilead.Homeis a moving and healing book about families, family secrets, and the passing of the generations, about love and death and faith.

Marilynne Robinson is the recipient of a 2012 National Humanities Medal, awarded by President Barack Obama. She is the author of Gilead, winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the National Book Critics Circle Award, and Home, winner of the Orange Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and a finalist for the National Book Award. Her first novel, Housekeeping, won the Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award. Robinson's nonfiction books include When I Was a Child I Read Books, Absence of Mind, and The Death of Adam. Her novels Mother Country and Lila, were nominated for a National Book Award.
