9780374299101: Home: A Novel

Hundreds of thousands were enthralled by the luminous voice of John Ames in Gilead, Marilynne Robinson's Pulitzer Prize–winning novel. Home is an entirely independent, deeply affecting novel that takes place concurrently in the same locale, this time in the household of Reverend Robert Boughton, Ames's closest friend.

Glory Boughton, aged thirty-eight, has returned to Gilead to care for her dying father. Soon her brother, Jack―the prodigal son of the family, gone for twenty years―comes home too, looking for refuge and trying to make peace with a past littered with tormenting trouble and pain.

Jack is one of the great characters in recent literature. A bad boy from childhood, an alcoholic who cannot hold a job, he is perpetually at odds with his surroundings and with his traditionalist father, though he remains Boughton's most beloved child. Brilliant, lovable, and wayward, Jack forges an intense bond with Glory and engages painfully with Ames, his godfather and namesake.

Home is a moving and healing book about families, family secrets, and the passing of the generations, about love and death and faith. It is Robinson's greatest work, an unforgettable embodiment of the deepest and most universal emotions.

Home is a 2008 National Book Award Finalist for Fiction.

Review:

Amazon Best of the Month, September 2008: "What does it mean to come home?" In one way or another, every character in Home is searching for that answer. Glory Boughton, now 38 and lovelorn, has returned to Gilead to care for her dying father. Her wayward brother Jack also finds his way back, though his is an uneasy homecoming, reverberating with the scandal that drove him away twenty years earlier. Glory and Jack unravel their stories slowly, speaking to each other more in movements than in words--a careful glance here, a chair pulled out from the table there--against a domestic backdrop so richly imagined you may be fooled into believing their house is your own. Meanwhile, their father, whose ebullient love for his children is a welcome counterpoint to Glory and Jack's conflicted emotions, experiences his own kind of reckoning as he yearns to understand his troubled son. There is a simplicity to this story that belies the complexity of its characters--they are bound together by a profound capacity for love and by an equally powerful sense of private conviction that tries the ties that bind, but never breaks them. It's a delicate sort of tension that you think would resist exposition--and in fact these characters seem to want nothing more than, as Glory says, to treat "one another's deceptions like truth"--but Marilynne Robinson's fine, tender prose imbues this family's secrets with an overwhelming grace. --Anne Bartholomew

Descripción Farrar, Straus and Giroux September 2008, 2008. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Marilynne Robinson's prose is nuanced, restrained, perfect; a vehicle of story that renders irrelevant the assumed boundaries between fiction and truth. In this new masterpiece ('masterpiece' is said here in plain honesty, perhaps even understatedly) the forebodings and shadows intermittently present in Gilead come into full view. The aged pastor John Ames' quietly anguished reminiscences of his friend and fellow-pastor Robert Boughton's black-sheep son Jack, in Gilead, are transformed into Jack's flesh-and-blood presence in Home. Glory, the youngest of Boughton's eight children, returned home to care for her dying father, becomes the only friend and interpreter of her tortured brother as he struggles toward the tenuous possibility of repentance and reconciliation with his family, with Ames, and the larger community. The entire drama unfolds in one household, in one very small town; yet the moral and psychological tensions exposed encompass the breadth of human and divine interaction. The issues parsed in the Calvinist-inflected theological debates briefly-visited in Gilead, become immediate-even when unspoken-as the Reverend Boughton, Ames, Jack and Glory navigate a space pregnant with hope and despair, choice and seemingly predetermined destiny. 325 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería 131215
