Hailed as "incandescent," "magnificent," and "a literary miracle" (Entertainment Weekly), hundreds of thousands of readers were enthralled by Marilynne Robinson's Gilead. Now Robinson returns with a brilliantly imagined retelling of the prodigal son parable, set at the same moment and in the same Iowa town as Gilead. The Reverend Boughton's hell-raising son, Jack, has come home after twenty years away. Artful and devious in his youth, now an alcoholic carrying two decades worth of secrets, he is perpetually at odds with his traditionalist father, though he remains his most beloved child. As Jack tries to make peace with his father, he begins to forge an intense bond with his sister Glory, herself returning home with a broken heart and turbulent past. Home is a luminous and healing book about families, family secrets, and faith from one of America's most beloved and acclaimed authors.

Review:

Praise for "Gilead": ""Gilead "is a beautiful work--demanding, grave and lucid . . . Robinson's words have a spiritual force that's very rare in contemporary fiction." --James Wood, "The New York Times Book Review"

"Remarkable . . . an even stronger accomplishment than "Gilead.""--Claire Messud, "The New York Review of Books

""An exquisite, often ruefully funny meditation on redemption."--Megan O'Grady, "Vogue"
"An anguished pastoral, a tableau of decency and compassion that is also an angry and devastating indictment of moral cowardice and unrepentant, unacknowledged sin. . . . . Beautiful."--A. O. Scott, "The New York Times Book Review

""Rich and resonant . . . "Gilead "and "Home "fit with and around each other perfectly, each complete on its own, yet enriching and enlivening the other. But both are books of such beauty and power."--Emily Barton, "Los Angeles Times

""Marilynne Robinson is so powerful a writer that she can reshape how we read."--Mark Athitakis, "Chicago Sun-Times "

""Home "begins simply, eschewing obvious verbal fineness, and slowly grows in luxury--its last fifty pages are magnificently moving. . . . Powerful."--James Wood, "The New Yorker

""When Marilynne Robinson writes a new book, it's an event."--Pat MacEnulty, "Charlotte Observer
