Editor reviews

The Thalia Book Club takes a more serious turn this episode when it features National Book Critics Circle Award winner Marilynne Robinson, talking about her new book, Gilead. 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!

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.

Disappointing

A rather inept and unrevealing interview with a great writer. It gets a bit better when questions are opened to the floor. But even then, they barely discuss the book in question.
