Ambitious, but never seeming so, Kent Haruf reveals a whole community as he interweaves the stories of a pregnant high school girl, a lonely teacher, a pair of boys abandoned by their mother, and a couple of crusty bachelor farmers. From simple elements, Haruf achieves a novel of wisdom and grace--a narrative that builds in strength and feeling until, as in a choral chant, the voices in the book surround, transport, and lift the reader off the ground. -- Publisher description

Our souls at night : a novel by Kent Haruf( Recording )

13 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A spare yet eloquent, bittersweet yet inspiring story of a man and a woman who, in advanced age, come together to wrestle with the events of their lives and their hopes for the imminent future. In the familiar setting of Holt, Colorado, home to all of Kent Haruf's inimitable fiction, Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they naturally have known of each other for decades; in fact, Addie was quite fond of Louis's wife. His daughter lives hours away in Colorado Springs, her son even farther away in Grand Junction, and Addie and Louis have long been living alone in houses now empty of family, the nights so terribly lonely, especially with no one to talk with
Benediction : a novel by Kent Haruf( Recording )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Dad Lewis is diagnosed with terminal cancer, he and his wife work together to make his final days comfortable. Their daughter, Lorraine, comes home from Denver to help look after Dad, which helps to soften the bitter absence of the Lewis's estranged son, Frank. Next door, young Alice lives with her grandmother, and Dad's condition stirs painful memories of her own mother's death. Meanwhile, the town's newly arrived preacher attempts to mend his strained relationships with his wife and teenaged son, a task that proves all the more challenging when he faces the disdain of his congregation after offering more than they are accustomed to getting on a Sunday morning. And throughout, an elderly widow and her middle-aged daughter do everything they can to ease the pain their friends and neighbors are suffering. Bracing, sad and deeply illuminating, Benediction captures the fullness of life by representing every stage of it -- including its extinction -- as well as the hopes and dreams that sustain us along the way

Moore takes to the air to document the High Plains of North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska in a series of stunning, large-format photographs.

The photographs interweave two stories: the myths and history of the vast, severe American High Plains alongside portraits of the people who live there today

Nosotros en la noche by Kent Haruf( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nosotros en la noche es una joya escondida: una historia concisa, conmovedora, agridulce pero a la vez inspiradora, con el revelador sentido del humor que solo poseen aquellos que han llegado a una edad en la que poco importa lo que puedan decir los demás. Louis Waters y Addie Moore llevan gran parte de su vida siendo vecinos en la apacible localidad de Holt, en Colorado. Ambos enviudaron hace años y acaban de franquear las puertas de la vejez, por lo que no han tenido más opción que acostumbrarse a estar solos, sobre todo en las horas más difíciles, después del anochecer. Pero Addie no está dispuesta a conformarse. De la forma más natural, decide hacer una inesperada visita a su vecino: Me preguntaba si vendrías a pasar las noches conmigo. Y hablar... . Ante tan sorprendente propuesta, Louis no puede hacer otra cosa que acceder. Al principio se sienten extraños, pero noche tras noche van conociéndose de nuevo: hablan de su juventud y sus matrimonios, de sus esperanzas pasadas y sus miedos presentes, de sus logros y errores. La intimidad entre ambos va creciendo y, a pesar de las habladurías de los vecinos y la incomprensión de sus propios hijos, vislumbran la posibilidad real de pasar juntos el resto de sus días. Reseñas: Una evocación de un lugar y unos personajes sutilmente devastadora y delicada. La historia de Haruf resuena a través de una serie de detalles cuidadosamente escogidos; la novela es plácida pero nunca complaciente. The New Yorker Un escritor que posee una originalidad deslumbrante. Habla pausadamente, con intimidad pero con contención, de un adulto a otro. Es cuidadoso a la hora de contar una buena historia. Y es una buena historia, sencillamente buena; destila verdad. Ursula K. LeGuin, The Guardian Su peculiar talento fue convertir el más puro decoro en un tema conmovedor. Esta novela trata sobre la tenaz insistencia en que los elementos sencillos conlleven profundidad, y eso los lectores lo agradecerán. The New York Times Book Review Completamente cautivadora y destilada con una pureza elemental. The Washington Post Breve, sobria y conmovedora [...].Nosotros en la noche ya está causando conmoción. The Wall Street Journal
