    Ever since the 1981 publication of her stunning debut, Housekeeping, Marilynne Robinson has built a sterling reputation as a writer of sharp, subtly moving prose, not only as a major American novelist (her second novel, Gilead, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize) but also a rigorous thinker and incisive essayist. In When I Was a Child I Read Books, Robinson returns to and expands upon the themes that have preoccupied her work with renewed vigor.
