Robinson's Gilead Wins the Pulitzer

The long-awaited second novel by Marilynne Robinson has won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction; it had earlier won the National Book Critics' Award for Fiction.

Coincidentally, my copy of Gilead arrived today! I have fond memories of Robinson's Housekeeping, which I read in my first lit class in college and loved. Hopefully, I will enjoy Gilead just as much. I'll keep you posted, of course.
