Kent Haruf passed away today.

This is a terrible loss to all of us who will never have the pleasure of reading a new Haruf book. If you aren’t already a fan, do yourself a favor and read one of his wonderful novels. Start with Plainsong. His books portray all the various sorrows and joys of being human, all within the borders of his imagined small, Colorado ranch town. He was a kind and gentle man and a wonderful writer who made it seem so easy to form simple sentences, one after the other, creating unforgettable stories.
