Beschreibung'Housekeeping' is the story of Ruth and her younger sister, Lucille, who grow up haphazardly, first under the care of their competent grandmother, then of two comically bumbling great-aunts, and finally of Sylvie, the eccentric and remote sister of their dead mother.
PortraitHousekeeping, Marilynne Robinson's first novel, was acclaimed by critics and later filmed by Bill Forsyth. She is also the author of a non-fiction title, the controversial Mother Country. Marilynne Robinson lives in New England.
