Product description

Review

“There are passages here of such profound, hard-won wisdom and spiritual insight that they make your own life seem richer…Gilead [is] a quiet, deep celebration of life that you must not miss.” ―Ron Charles, The Christian Science Monitor

“The long wait has been worth it… Robinson's prose is beautiful, shimmering, and precise… destined to become her second classic.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“There is a lot of pleasure to be had in the novel's probing, thoughtful narrative voice.” ―Matt Murray, The Wall Street Journal

Gilead is a beautiful work… Robinson's words have a spiritual force that's very rare in contemporary fiction.” ―James Wood, The New York Times Book Review

“Lyrical and meditative… potently contemplative.” ―Michael Orecklin, Time

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
