Synopsis

'Absolutely beautiful' The Times

'Luminous' Ursula K Le Guin, Guardian

'I loved Our Souls at Night' David Nicholls

Addie Moore's husband died years ago, so did Louis Waters' wife, and, as neighbours in Holt, Colorado they have naturally long been aware of each other. With their children now far away both live alone in houses empty of family. The nights are terribly lonely, especially with no one to talk to. Then one evening Addie pays Louis an unexpected visit.

Their brave adventures-their pleasures and their difficulties-form the beating heart of Our Souls at Night. Kent Haruf's final novel is an exquisite and moving story about love and growing old with grace. It is a lasting tribute to the extraordinary author who wrote it.

In the media

A delicate, sneakily devastating evocation of place and character . . . Haruf's story accumulates resonance through carefully chosen details; the novel is quiet but never complacent
New Yorker
A novel full of kindness, open-heartedness and grace, of ordinary experiences and commonplace regret . . . unputdownable as a thriller - an unlikely page-turner full of quiet surprises . . . It's an astonishing piece of writing
Literary Review
Short, spare and moving . . . Our Souls at Night is already creating a stir.
Wall Street Journal
