"Absolutely beautiful" The Times

"Gripping and tender" Publishers Weekly

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.

MORE PRAISE FOR OUR SOULS AT NIGHT

"Luminous" Ursula K Le Guin, Guardian

"I loved Kent Haruf's small-town love story" David Nicholls

"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

"Short, spare and moving" Wall Street Journal

"Gritty, painful and human . . . Haruf's final novel is a beacon of hope; he is sorely missed" Financial Times
