Our Souls at Night
Our Souls at Night By Haruf, Kent Book - 2015 | First Edition.

I read OUR SOULS AT NIGHT as the 6th and final of a Kent Haruf marathon, reading WHERE YOU ONCE BELONGED, THE TIE THAT BINDS and The PLAINSONG Trilogy in quick succession. Having insight into the fact that OUR SOULS was Haruf's last novel, written while he dying of lung disease, made it a particularly poignant endeavor.
Haruf's writing style (e.g., lacking certain "normal" punctuation) might be off-putting to some readers, but his eloquent descriptive use of the written word is almost beyond compare.
Read OUR SOULS as the swan-song of a gifted writer who was silenced too soon.
