Just before Christmas last year, we received a very special submission: a new novel by Kent Haruf, the author of the Plainsong books set in the fictional town of Holt, Colorado. Our Souls at Night is an exquisite book made all the more poignant by the fact that Kent very sadly passed away just a week after we in the UK received the book, and two days before the final copyedit was finished. We spoke to his wife, Cathy, about Kent’s writing and what this book means to her.
