Synopsis

WINNER OF THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2009



Jack Boughton - prodigal son - has been gone twenty years. He returns home seeking refuge and to make peace with the past. A bad boy from childhood, an alcoholic who cannot hold down a job, Jack is perpetually at odds with his surroundings and with his traditionalist father, though he remains Boughton's most beloved child. His sister Glory has also returned, fleeing her own mistakes, to care for their dying father. A moving book about families, about love and death and faith, Home is unforgettable. It is a masterpiece.

Customer Reviews

In this novel more than her others, you are aware of how the present is given meaning through our memories, our interpretation, of the past. Robinson's light and quiet style is able to convey the way in which many of our conversations with family and friends are loaded with our experiences of the past, and make sense and are often evaluated in light of this. 'Home' gives us a rich view of the American mid-West via the microcosm of Gilead and a handful of families there; it is an intimate and beautifully rendered portrait.
