Synopsis

'I loved Our Souls at Night' David Nicholls

Our Souls at Night is a deeply affecting love story, adapted into a film starring Jane Fonda and Robert Redford.

This is a love story.
A story about growing old with grace.

Addie Moore and Louis Waters have been neighbours for years. Now they both live alone, their houses empty of family, their quiet nights solitary. Then one evening Addie pays Louis a visit.

Soon to be a major film starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda.

Their brave adventures form the beating heart of Our Souls at Night, Kent Haruf's exquisite final novel.

In the media

A humane, deeply affecting final novel
Daily Mail
His great subject was the struggle of decency against small-mindedness, and his rare gift was to make sheer decency a moving subject . . . This novel runs on the dogged insistence that simple elements carry depths, and readers will find much to be grateful for.
New York Times
Gritty, painful and human . . . his novels are imbued with an affection and understanding that transform the most mundane details into poetry . . . Haruf's final novel is a beacon of hope; he is sorely missed
Financial Times
