Description
(First Edition, Signed Bookplate) The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Gilead, Lila, and Housekeeping, Marilynne Robinson here delivers an impassioned critique of contemporary society while arguing that reverence must be given to who we are and what we are: creatures of singular interest and value, despite our errors and depredations. In these 17 essays Robinson focuses on our modern predicament and the mysteries of faith, examining the ideas that have inspired and provoked her throughout her life, from the words of great thinkers like Calvin, Locke, Bonhoeffer, and even Shakespeare, to the rise of the self-declared elite in American religious and political life. We are offering this remarkably thoughtful collection in a first edition with a bookplate signed by the author.

"Robinson's genius is for making indistinguishable the highest ends of faith and fiction.... The beauty of Robinson's prose suggests an author continually threading with spun platinum the world's finest needle."—Bookforum
