Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
25th August, Liverpool
19 Abercromby Square, Liverpool, L69 7ZG
What have I to leave you but the ruins of old courage, and the lore of old gallantry and hope?
If Wordsworth were to be reborn as a twentieth century American, Gilead is the book he would write. Human, humane, real, devout, and connecting the inner spiritual with the outer public life, this moving novel was mentioned by Barack Obama as a favourite.
While you read this, I am imperishable, somehow more alive than I have ever been.
