“Quietly powerful [and] moving.” O, The Oprah Magazine (recommended reading)

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award, GILEAD is a hymn of praise and lamentation to the God-haunted existence that Reverend Ames loves passionately, and from which he will soon part.

Nearly 25 years afterHousekeeping, Marilynne Robinson returns with an intimate tale of three generations, from the Civil War to the 20th century: a story about fathers and sons and the spiritual battles that still rage at America's heart. In the words ofKirkus, it is a novel "as big as a nation, as quiet as thought, and moving as prayer. Matchless and towering." GILEAD tells the story of America and will break your heart.

Marilynne Robinson is the author ofGilead, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction; the award-winnersHome andHousekeeping; andNew York Times bestsellers includingWhen I Was a Child I Read Books andLila. Robinson's nonfiction books includeAbsence of Mind,The Death of Adam, andMother Country, which was nominated for a National Book Award.

Tim Jerome has performed on Broadway (Phantom of the Opera,Beauty and the Beast,Cats), on film (Streets of New York,Thirteen Days), and television (Law and Order). He has won Earphone and Audie awards for his audiobook performances.

“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
