Marilynne Robinson: What Are All These Fragments For?

For why do our thoughts turn to some gesture of a hand, the fall of a sleeve, some corner of a room on a particular anonymous afternoon, even when we are asleep, even when we are so old that our thoughts have abandoned other business? What are all these fragments for, if not to be knit up finally?

--Marilynne Robinson, from Housekeeping


  1. That's cool Nico, something to think about.

  2. I really like this novel--she's a great writer, and her work is full of gems such as this one.

  3. I am going to have to check her out. You really have a cool blog here.
