Babel - Marilynne Robinson - Gilead - Just Buffalo Literary Center

Gilead

The 2004 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel
A New York Times Top Ten Book of 2004
Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction
A PBS Great American Read selection

In her Pulitzer-Prize winning novel, Gilead, Marilynne Robinson offers readers an intimate tale of three generations, from the Civil War to the 20th century: a story about fathers and sons and the spiritual battles that still rage at America’s heart. In the words of Kirkus, it is a novel “as big as a nation, as quiet as thought, and moving as prayer. Matchless and towering.” Gilead tells the story of America and will break your heart.
