Beskrivelse

Marilynne Robinson, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the American National Humanities Medal, returns to the world of Gilead with Jack, the final in one of the great works of contemporary American fiction. Jack tells the story of John Ames Boughton, the beloved and grieved-over prodigal son of a Presbyterian minister in Gilead, Iowa, a drunkard and a ne'er-do-well. In segregated St. Louis sometime after World War II, Jack falls in love with Della Miles, an African-American high school teacher, also a preacher's child, with a discriminating mind, a generous spirit, and an independent will. Their fraught, beautiful story is one of Robinson's greatest achievements. Marilynne Robinson is the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Women's Prize for Fiction and she has twice been nominated for the International Booker Prize. In 2013 she was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Obama.
