    Review quote
    : "Possesses the haunting appeal of music, the folksy rhythms of an American ballad and the lovely, measured grace of an old hymn." -Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times" "A kind book in a cruel world. . . [with] honest impulses, real people and the occasional workings of grace." "-"Christopher Tilghman, "The Washington Post""An extraordinary vision. . . . Who in America can still write like this?

[Haruf] rewards the reader's willingness to explore quotidian life with the occasional burst of heart-pounding drama, [and] one scene of romantic discovery, understated and painterly, is enough to weaken the knees of anycynic." -"The Plain Dealer""Haruf's laconic style-- with nouns as strong and upright as fenceposts, the verbs as clean and sharp as razor wire-- [creates] a
