AOT #370: Kent Haruf Podcasts Benediction
Kent Haruf, the beloved and best-selling author of Plainsong and Eventide, reads from and discusses his new novel Benediction, a story of life and death, and the ties that bind, once again set out on the High Plains in Holt, Colorado. Bracing, sad and deeply illuminating, Benediction captures the fullness of life by representing every stage of it, including its extinction, as well as the hopes and dreams that sustain us along the way. In his new novel, Haruf gives us his most indelible portrait yet of this small town and reveals, with grace and insight, the compassion, the suffering and, above all, the humanity of its inhabitants.
