Laura Dassow Walls on Marilynne Robinson

“Marilynne Robinson is another great inheritor. If I could have had ten books, I would add Robinson’s novel ‘Housekeeping’ where, again, it’s a woman who takes the Thoreauvian stance, literally setting up housekeeping, like Thoreau, toward the problem of dwelling truly, which means departing from convention.”
