Book Talk: Marilynne Robinson returns to familiar terrain in “Lila” – Yahoo News

Book Talk: Marilynne Robinson returns to familiar terrain in NEW YORK (Reuters) – Critically-acclaimed author Marilynne Robinson has written only four novels since 1980, but is widely considered among the country’s best fiction writers. In her latest, “Lila,” Robinson returns to the fictional town of Gilead, Iowa, the setting for her two previous novels, “Home” and the Pulitzer Prize-winning “Gilead.” The book chronicles Lila’s almost feral youth with a drifter named Doll, and her eventual marriage to the Reverend John Ames, a widower. Robinson, 71, spoke with Reuters about writing and “Lila,” which was a finalist for the National Book Award.
