Beschreibung
'Grace and intelligence . . . Marilynne Robinson defines universal truths about what it means to be human' Barack Obama

Setting her novel after World War II, just before Gilead , Home and Lila , Marilynne Robinson returns to the world of Gilead.

Jack, the grieved-over prodigal son, a drunkard and a ne'er-do-well has left home for St Louis. In that segregated city Jack falls in love with an African-American high school teacher, also a preacher's child. Della Miles is a woman with a discriminating mind, a generous spirit and an independent will. Jack is their fraught and beautiful love story.

'An unlikely love story, both funny and sublime: we see two souls awakening to love in that down-to-earth yet transcendent vein that is Robinson's special hallmark' Nonnie Minogue, Literary Review

' Jack fits beautifully into the subtle weave of Robinson's Gilead books . . . could perfectly well be read on its own' Erica Wagner, Financial Times

'An immensely satisfying and bittersweet end to an astonishing series . . . They are beautiful, and they are true' Stuart Kelly, Scotsman
