James Wood of The New Republic acts as emcee and truly raises the level of conversation. Finally, the actor Peter Garrity (Syriana and Inside Man) reads beautifully from the opening pages of Robinson's work. For listeners interested in deep intellectual debates, this is the Thalia Book Club episode not to miss!

Publisher's Summary

Marilynne Robinson discusses her Pulitzer Prize-winning and New York Times best-selling second novel, the lyrical, luminous, unforgettable story of minister John Ames, as told poetically in a long letter to his young son. His powerful story spans three generations from the Civil War to the twentieth century. This is a book that is being passed hand to hand and that booksellers nationwide are recommending.
