Marilynne Robinson returns to the town of Gilead in her new novel, Lila. “There is the precision and lyrical power of her language, and the way it embodies a struggle—the fight to use the best words to describe both the visible and the invisible world,” wrote James Wood. Colm Tóibín’s new novel, about a widowed young mother, is Nora Webster. “He is an extraordinary writer—daring and precise,” wrote Roddy Doyle.
