Writer Marilynne Robinson is known for her exploration of theology in her literary works; in two scenes from her novels, the character Jack Boughton seeks to answer the question: “Are there people who are simply born evil, live evil lives, and then go to hell?”
Marilynne Robinson is the author of the novels “Housekeeping,” “Gilead” and “Home,” as well as the nonfiction works “Mother Country,” “The Death of Adam” and “Absence of Mind.”
“Housekeeping” was included in The New York Times “Books of the Century” and listed as one of the 100 greatest novels of all time by the Guardian Observer (U.K.). “Gilead” won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Robinson currently teaches at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and lives in Iowa City.
