Marilynne Robinson has built a sterling reputation as a writer of sharp, subtly moving prose, not only as a major American novelist, but also as a rigorous thinker and incisive essayist.

In When I Was a Child I Read Books she returns to and expands upon the themes which have preoccupied her work with renewed vigor.

In Austerity as Ideology, she tackles the global debt crisis, and the charged political and social political climate in this country that makes finding a solution to our financial troubles so challenging. In Open Thy Hand Wide she searches out the deeply embedded role of generosity in Christian faith. And in When I Was a Child, one of her most personal essays to date, an account of her childhood in Idaho becomes an exploration of individualism and the myth of the American West. Clear-eyed and forceful as ever, Robinson demonstrates once again why she is regarded as one of our essential writers.
