Posthumously published, this is the story of a small-town (Holt, Colorado, of course) widow and widower who cautiously find happiness at the end of their lives. Not excitement, not sexual satisfaction, not pure bliss. Just day-to-day happiness, a subject that doesn't exactly burn up the pages of popular fiction. Not the pursuit of happiness. Much has been written about that. But the actual presence of it. And in the words of Ursula Le Guin..."I don't think there's a false word in Kent Haruf's final novel, Our Souls at Night."
