Concluding the saga that began in the Pulitzer Prize winner Gilead, Daedalus favorite Marilynne Robinson tells the story of John Ames Boughton, the prodigal son of the town's Presbyterian minister, and his romance with Della Miles, a high school teacher who is also the son of a preacher. Unexpected and tormented, their star-crossed interracial romance resonates with all the paradoxes of American life, then and now. We are pleased to offer her revelatory new novel as a first edition, each with a tipped-in plate that has been autographed by Robinson. "Robinson's stellar, revelatory fourth entry in her Gilead cycle ... is a beautiful, superbly crafted meditation on the redemption and transcendence that love affords."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
The special first editions of Jack, those with the signature handwritten on the actual page inside, were damaged at the publisher's warehouse and we won't be able to secure any copies at all. We're very sorry, but we will have very soon first editions with signed bookplates, equally lovely. And we've been assured by the publisher those books can be in our warehouse and able to ship no later than 11/1.
We do have currently in stock, UNSIGNED first editions with no bookplates D09028 in case the dear reader simply cannot wait to read it!
