Virago announces Marilynne Robinson’s thrilling new novel, JACK – making her famous Gilead novels a quartet
Revisiting her beloved characters and settings and joining Gilead, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Home, winner of the Women’s Prize for Fiction and Lila, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award: this novel is Jack’s story. Says Lennie Goodings, ‘I know, like me, thousands of Marilynne Robinson’s devoted readers have been hoping that she would return to these novels and our hopes are rewarded. Never has Marilynne Robinson’s compassion, wisdom and wit been so beautifully employed as when she is telling us the story of this much-loved but wayward son. She is truly one of America’s – and indeed the world’s – greatest writers and thinkers.’
Virago will publish the novel on September 15 2020 alongside Farrar, Straus and Giroux in America, and McClelland & Stewart in Canada.
