It is that time of the week again where we share a book quote that seemed particularly striking for us.
Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson was probably one of the very first literary novels that I read when I was in my early 20s, and working as a junior psychology lecturer (while doing multiple research studies on the side) in the university where I got my Bachelor’s degree and PhD.
It was one of the book club picks of my fellow junior faculty across a variety of disciplines – from History to Linguistics, Philosophy to Geography, Psychology to Political Science. We would meet regularly to discuss books, watch and parse art films, talk about poetry. I recall falling in love with Robinson’s quiet voice. I hope to return to this book one day.
