Plainsong by Kent Haruf( Book )

110 editions published between 1999 and 2020 in 12 languages and held by 4,780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

In Holt, Colorado, widower Louis Waters is initially thrown when the widowed Addie Moore suggests that they spend time together, in bed, to stave off loneliness. "No, not sex," she clarifies. "I'm talking about getting through the night. And lying warm in bed, companionably." 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

Mais voilà, les choses ne vont pas se passer si simplement, les cancans vont bon train, et les familles s'en mêlent… Que va-t-il advenir de cette bulle de douceur si précieuse qu'Addie et Louis avaient réussi à construire ?

Where you once belonged by Kent Haruf( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Where You Once Belonged, the bestselling and award-winning novelist of Eventide, Kent Haruf tells of a small-town hero who is dealt an enviable hand?and cheats with all of the cards. Deftly plotted, defiantly honest, Where You Once Belonged sings the song of a wounded prairie community in a narrative with the earmarks of a modern American classic. In prose as lean and supple as a spring switch, Haruf describes a high school football star who wins the heart of the loveliest girl in the county and the admiration of men twice his age. Fun-loving, independent, Burdette engages in the occasional prank. But when he turns into a man, his high jinks turn into crimes?with unspeakable consequences. Now, eight years later, Burdette has returned to commit his greatest trespass of all. And the people of Holt may not be able to stop him

"Papá Lewis se sienta en el porche de casa junto a su mujer. El calor del verano de Colorado abrasa, pero él bebe despacio una cerveza bien fría mientras mira hacia las llanuras que se extienden más allá de donde le alcanza la vista. Le queda poco tiempo para disfrutar de estos grandes placeres cotidianos -su esposa, su pueblo, su casa-, pues le acaban de anunciar que está gravemente enfermo. Le quedan solo unos meses de vida. A partir de esta noticia, descubrimos la terquedad y la ternura de Papá Lewis y la vida de los otros habitantes del pequeño pueblo de Holt. Kent Haruf teje una red de personajes y de relaciones formadas y transformadas a lo largo de las décadas, aderezadas con un viento constante y con el sempiterno olor a paja, tierra y trigo del noreste estadounidense."--Casadellibro
