1And then there was the day when Addie Moore made a call on Louis Waters It was an evening in May just before full dark.They lived a block apart on Cedar Street in the oldest part of town with elm trees and hackberry and a single maple grown up along the curb and green lawns running back from the sidewalk to the two story houses It had been warm in the day but it had turned off cool now in the evening She went along the sidewalk under the trees and turned in at Louiss house.When Louis came to the door she said, Could I come in and talk to you about something They sat down in the living room Can I get you something to drink Some tea No thank you I might not be here long enough to drink it She looked around Your house looks nice.Diane always kept a nice house Ive tried a little bit.It still looks nice, she said I havent been in here for years.She looked out the windows at the side yard where the night was settling in and out into the kitchen where there was a light shining over the sink and counters It all looked clean and orderly He was watching her She was a good looking woman, he had always thought so Shed had dark hair when she was younger, but it was white now and cut short She was still shapely, only a little heavy at the waist and hips.You probably wonder what Im doing here, she said.Well, I didnt think you came over to tell me my house looks nice.No I want to suggest something to you.Oh Yes A kind of proposal.Okay.Not marriage, she said.I didnt think that either.But its a kind of marriage like question But I dont know if I can now Im getting cold feet She laughed a little Thats sort of like marriage, isnt it.What is Cold feet.It can be.Yes Well, Im just going to say it.Im listening, Louis said.I wonder if you would consider coming to my house sometimes to sleep with me.What How do you mean I mean were both alone Weve been by ourselves for too long For years Im lonely I think you might be too I wonder if you would come and sleep in the night with me And talk.He stared at her, watching her, curious now, cautious.You dont say anything Have I taken your breath away she said.I guess you have.Im not talking about sex.I wondered.No, not sex Im not looking at it that way I think Ive lost any sexual impulse a long time ago Im talking about getting through the night And lying warm in bed, companionably Lying down in bed together and you staying the night The nights are the worst Dont you think Yes I think so.I end up taking pills to go to sleep and reading too late and then I feel groggy the next day No use at all to myself or anybody else.Ive had that myself.But I think I could sleep again if there were someone else in bed with me Someone nice The closeness of that Talking in the night, in the dark She waited What do you think I dont know When would you want to start Whenever you want to If, she said, you want to This week.Let me think about it.All right But I want you to call me on the day youre coming if that happens So Ill know to expect you.All right.Ill be waiting to hear from you.What if I snore Then youll snore, or youll learn to quit.He laughed That would be a first.She stood and went out and walked back home, and he stood at the door watching her, this medium sized seventy year old woman with white hair walking away under the trees in the patches of light thrown out by the corner street lamp What in the hell, he said Now dont get ahead of yourself.2The next day Louis went to the barber on Main Street and had his hair cut short and neat, a kind of buzz cut, and asked the barber if he still shaved people and the barber said he did, so he got a shave too Then he went home and called Addie and said, Id like to come over tonight if thats still all right.Yes, it is, she said Im glad.He ate a light supper, just a sandwich and a glass of milk, he didnt want to feel heavy and laden in her bed, and then he took a long hot shower and scrubbed himself thoroughly He trimmed his fingernails and toenails and at dark he went out the back door and walked up the back alley carrying a paper sack with his pajamas and toothbrush inside It was dark in the alley and his feet made a rasping noise in the gravel A light was showing in the house across the alley and he could see the woman in profile there at the sink in the kitchen He went on into Addie Moores backyard past the garage and the garden and knocked on the back door He waited quite a while A car drove by on the street out front, its headlights shining He could hear the high school kids over on Main Street honking their horns at one another Then the porch light came on above his head and the door opened.What are you doing back here Addie said.I thought it would be less likely for people to see me.I dont care about that Theyll know Someone will see Come by the front door out on the front sidewalk I made up my mind Im not going to pay attention to what people think Ive done that too longall my life Im not going to live that way any The alley makes it seem were doing something wrong or something disgraceful, to be ashamed of.Ive been a schoolteacher in a little town too long, he said Thats what it is But all right Ill come by the front door the next time If there is a next time.Dont you think there will be she said Is this just a one night stand I dont know Maybe Minus the sex part of that, of course I dont know how this will go.Dont you have any faith she said.In you, I do I can have faith in you I see that already But Im not sure I can be equal to you.What are you talking about How do you mean that In courage, he said Willingness to risk.Yes, but youre here Ce texte fait r f rence l dition CD.More Winesburg that Mayberry, Holt and its residents are shaped by physical solitude and emotional reticence Haruf s fiction ratifies ordinary, nonflashy decency, but he also knows that even the most placid lives are complicated than they appear from the outside The novel is a plainspoken, vernacular farewell Catherine Holmes, The Charleston Post and CourierA marvelous addition to his oeuvre spare but eloquent, bittersweet yet hopeful Kurt Rabin, The Fredericksburg Freelance StarLatenessand second chanceshave always been a theme for Haruf.But here, in a book about love and the aftermath of grief, in his final hours, he has produced his most intense expression of that yet Packed into less than 200 pages are all the issues late life provokes John Freeman, The Boston GlobeA fitting close to a storied career, a beautiful rumination on aging, accommodation, and our need to connect As a meditation on life and forthcoming death, Haruf couldnt have done any better He has given us a powerful, pared down story of two characters who refuse to go gentle into that good night Lynn Rosen, The Philadelphia EnquirerA delicate, sneakily devastating evocation of place and character Harufs story accumulates resonance through carefully chosen details the novel is quiet but never complacent The New YorkerElegiac, mournful and compassionate.a triumphant end to an inspiring literary career and a reminder of a loss on the American cultural landscape, as well as a parting gift from a master storyteller William J Cobb, The Dallas Morning NewsA fine and poignant novel that demonstrates that our desire to love and to be loved does not dissolve with age The story speeds along, almost as if it s a page turning mystery Joseph Peschel, The St Louis Post DispatchBy turns amusing and sad, skipping down the sidewalk light and pensive I recommend reading it straight through, then sitting in quiet reflection of beautiful literary art Fred Ohles, The Lincoln Journal StarHaruf is never sentimental, and the endingmultiple twists packed into the last twenty pagesis gritty, painful and utterly human His novels are imbued with an affection and understanding that transform the most mundane details into poetry Like the friendly light shining from Addie s window, Harufs final novel is a beacon of hope he is sorely missed Francesca Wade, Financial Times Haruf was knows as a great writer and teacher whose work will endure The cadence of this book is soft and gentle, filled with shy emotion, as tentative as a young person s first kisstimeless in its beauty Addie and Louis find a type of love that, as our society ages, ever people in the baby boom generation may find is the only kind of love that matters Jim Ewing, The Jackson Clarion LedgerThere is so much wisdom in this beautifully pared back and gentle book a small, quiet gem, written in English so plain that it sparkles Anne Susskind, The Sydney Morning HeraldHis great subject was the struggle of decency against small mindedness, and his rare gift was to make sheer decency a moving subject This novel runs on the dogged insistence that simple elements carry depths, and readers will find much to be grateful for Joan Silber, The New York Times Book ReviewIn a fitting and gorgeous end to a body of work that prizes resilience above all else, Haruf has bequeathed readers a map charting a future that is neither easy nor painless, but its also not something we have to bear alone EsquireUtterly charming and distilled to elemental purity such a tender, carefully polished work that it seems like a blessing we had no right to expect Ron Charles, The Washington PostHaruf spent a life making art from our blind collisions, and Our Souls at Night is a fitting finish John Reimringer, The Minneapolis Star TribuneHaruf once again banishes doubts Our souls can surprise us Beneath the surface of reticent livesand of Harufs calm prosethey prove unexpectedly brave Ann Hulbert, The AtlanticBlunt, textured, and dryly humorous this quietly elegiac novel caps a fine, late blooming and tenacious writing career Harufs gift is to make hay of
