Favorite Authors: The One Blockbuster Book to Read This Fall
The year's hottest authors reveal that one special read we all need to pick up this autumn...
"I'm diving into Lila
, by Marilynne Robinson, which is the third novel in the trilogy that began with Gilead
. In Home
, Glory, the dutiful daughter and sister who stays at home to take care of her elderly father, has so much roiling beneath her surface—resentment, gratitude, pride, heart-broken-ness—that she made me see certain women in a completely new way. I can't wait to see what Robinson does with the character of Lila, the mysterious young wife who appears in both earlier novels. This is a writer so powerfully luminous and direct, her stories transcend their terrain of church and small town."
— Rene Steinke, author of Friendswood
