I Review Kent Haruf’s “Our Souls At Night”

without comments

You hear a lot about the power of Haruf’s “spare” prose, and rightly so. Of his own writing, Haruf, in a final interview with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, said, “I have written as close to the bone as I could. By that I mean that I was trying to get down to the fundamental, irreducible structure of life, and of our lives with one another.”

You can buy Kent Haruf’s Our Souls At Night at Barnes and Noble.
