WHEN I WAS A CHILD I READ BOOKS Essays

by | Read by Marilynne Robinson

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Robinson's essays demand one’s undivided attention as they illuminate profoundly relevant global issues, and the political, social, environmental, and religious climate in America today. Robinson's insights, bolstered by treatises on Christianity, pinpoint how humanity arrived at this point and the likely effect of today’s climate on future generations. Read by the author, the collection articulates her intensity and sincerity. The purposeful force of her inspiring narration encourages the listener to compare his or her own depths of experience to hers. In the title essay, Robinson describes an Idaho childhood in which her youthful coming-of-age expectations mirrored the myth of the American West. Any devoted reader will identify with her lifelong love of books, the craft of writing, and the creative spirit. With its elegant prose, this book once again affirms Robinson’s well-deserved status as a Pulitzer Prize winner. A.W. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2012]
