Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson - Spring 2006, Ohlone College Book Club

…is our book selection for Spring 2006. Housekeeping is the story of two sisters abandoned by a series of relatives until taken up by their eccentric Aunt Sylvie.

In 1981 Le Anne Schreiber wrote in the New York Times Book Review:

Marilynne Robinson has written a first novel that one reads as slowly as poetry - and for the same reason: The language is so precise, so distilled, so beautiful that one doesn't want to miss any pleasure it might yield up to patience.

Purchase copies in the Ohlone College Library for $10 USD each (cash only please) - buy from the Reference/Information Desk (not the Circulation/Checkout Desk).
