'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.

Review:

The language is straightforward and stripped back, calm and unassuming. And it all combines to make a novel which, like Louis and Addie's relationship does for them, warms and expands the heart . . . the sentiment that lingers most, on finishing this beautiful, tranquil, tender novel, is contentment, Observer

Simple, low-key and absolutely beautiful., The Times

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

To ring true, description of even the humblest kind of fulfilment and contentment must be written in awareness of human inadequacy and cruelty and the possibility of illness, ruin, death. One false word can make it all incredible. I don't think there's a false word in Kent Haruf's final novel, Our Souls in the Night . . . Many novels have been about the pursuit of happiness, but this one is luminous with its actual presence . . . Perhaps happiness is less predictable than misery, since it partakes of freedom. Like freedom, also, it's never secure; it can't be for ever. But it can be real, and in this beautiful novel, we can share it -- Ursula K Le Guin, Guardian

So beautiful; quietly gripping, full of love, humour and gentle shocks. Our Souls at Night is a perfect tribute to a truly extraordinary writer. -- Donal Ryan, author of The Spinning Heart

A humane, deeply affecting final novel, Daily Mail

His great subject was the struggle of decency against small-mindedness, and his rare gift was to make sheer decency a moving subject . . . This novel runs on the dogged insistence that simple elements carry depths, and readers will find much to be grateful for., New York Times

Gritty, painful and human . . . his novels are imbued with an affection and understanding that transform the most mundane details into poetry . . . Haruf's final novel is a beacon of hope; he is sorely missed -- Francesca Wade, Financial Times

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 . . . Our Souls at Night is already creating a stir., Wall Street Journal

Book Description:

From the Folio Prize-shortlisted author of Plainsong, Eventide and Benediction, a stunning novel about finding happiness later in life.
