When I Was A Child I Read Books

Marilynne Robinson

Of Marilynne Robinson, Michael Arditti said that there is ‘no contemporary novelist whose work I would rather read’. However she is not only a writer of sharp, subtly moving prose, but also a rigorous thinker and incisive essayist. In this luminous new collection she returns to the themes which have preoccupied her bestselling novels: the place literature has in life, the role of faith in modern living, the contradictions inherent in human nature. Clear-eyed and forceful as ever, Robinson demonstrates once again why she is regarded as one of our best-loved writers.
