Marilynne Robinson won a PEN/Hemingway award for Housekeeping, her 1980 debut novel about transience, loss, and survival. Gilead, her “serenely beautiful” (Washington Post) tale of three generations of an ordinary but unforgettable family, won a Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award. In Home, she revisited the town of Gilead, Iowa in a reimagined prodigal son parable of children returning home to care for their dying father. In 2013, Robinson was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Barack Obama for her “grace and intelligence in writing.” Lila revisits the beloved characters and countryside of Gilead and Home
