Marilynne Robinson: Jack

Oct 13, 2020

Marilynne Robinson continues her beloved and now-classic series of Gilead novels with the publication of Jack. Set in the 1950s, Jack tells the story of John Ames Boughton, prodigal son of the town’s Presbyterian minister, and his interracial romance with Della Miles, a high-school teacher.

“Robinson’s stellar, revelatory fourth entry in her Gilead cycle is a beautiful, superbly crafted meditation on the redemption and transcendence that love affords,” wrote Publishers Weekly.
