Esquire's 80 Books Every Person Should Read (80 books items)

"Twenty-five years before Marilynne Robinson won a Pulitzer Prize for Gilead (and acquired a superfan named Barack Obama), she wrote this short, strange novel about two orphaned sisters being raised by a "drifter" aunt in a forgotten town called Fingerbone.
