Our Souls at Night

book-cover       Addie Moore and Louis Waters are from the small town of Holt and have known each other for decades. Both have lost their partners and are finding the time after nightfall unbearably lonely. Their solution is seemingly simple – to spend the nights sleeping together and talking in the dark.

Tenderly and succinctly written, bringing to mind a “coming of age” novel where the protagonists are in the third age of retirement. This is Kent Haruf’s final novel, drafted while he knew he was dying.

A short, intimate journey.
