When I Was a Child: A "When I Was a Child I Read Books" Essay by Marilynne Robinson
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 that have preoccupied her work with renewed vigor.

Wonderful Short Memories

Marilynne Robinson .... somehow - speaks to my soul. There are not many authors with whom I feel as if they are reaching inside of me and finding a gem with their words but Robinson does that with me. Every book, every time.
