Let's Talk About It
Next in the series of “Picturing America: Making Tracks” is Housekeeping, a novel by Marilynne Robinson, published in 1980. The novel was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and awarded the PEN/Hemingway Award for best first novel. In 2003, The Guardian Unlimited named Housekeeping one of the 100 greatest novels of all time, describing the book as "a haunting, poetic story, drowned in water and light, about three generations of women." Time magazine also included the novel in its TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005. Copies of the book are available now at the Waynesville Library office, Monday – Friday, 9-5.
