Synopsis

'Absolutely beautiful' The Times
'Luminous' Ursula K Le Guin, Guardian
'I loved Our Souls at Night' David Nicholls

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.

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

In the media

Simple, low-key and absolutely beautiful.
The Times
A humane, deeply affecting final novel
Daily Mail
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
