I think it might make some people weep, I didn't.
I liked it well enough to explore Haruf's other books, all set in the same small town he created Holt, Colorado. I read "Plainsong," and found it enjoyable. Kent Haruf has a plain style of prose that yet holds some incredibly beautiful imagery. His characters are believable as well as interesting. I will most likely read more of his work. Ah, so many books, so little time.
