Read full description of the books:
Jake is in the tailspin of old age. His wife has passed away, his son is in prison, and now he is about to lose his past to Alzheimer's. As the disease takes hold of him, Jake's memories become increasingly unreliable. What happened to his daughter? Is she alive, or long dead? Why is his son imprisoned? And why can't he shake the memory of a yellow dress and one lonely, echoing gunshot?
Like Marilynne Robinson's "Gilead, The Wilderness "holds us in its grip from the first sentence to the last" "with the sheer beauty of its language and its ruminations on love and loss.
