Synopsis:

From the unsettled lives of a small-town teacher struggling to raise two boys alone in the face of their mother's retreat from life, a pregnant teenage girl with nowhere to go, and two elderly bachelor farmers emerges a new vision of life and family as their diverse destinies intertwine.


Review:

"Though [Kent Haruf's] third novel, PLAINSONG, is relatively uneventful--a year in the lives of normal folk in the small prairie town of Holt, Colo.--his mesmerizing language draws the reader in, fascinating even with his depictions of the most mundane occurrences....Haruf's haunting, virtuosic writing...is both spare and descriptive, as painstaking in capturing vagueness as it is precise detailing the concrete."

Sarah Saffian, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 09/26/1999

Review:

"When was the last time I read an entire novel in two days? Probably 55 years ago, when I was a teenager....[N]ow, half a century later, I've had the delightful experience once again of becoming so absorbed in a book that I couldn't have slowed down if I tried.....The book is Kent Haruf's PLAINSONG, the most controlled, cohesive novel I've come across in a long time....[A]s flawlessly unified as a short story by Poe or Chekhov."

Jon Hassler, Chicago Tribune Books, 10/10/1999

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 203 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. quot; Ambitious, but never seeming so, Kent Haruf reveals a whole community as he interweaves the stories of a pregnant high school girl, a lonely teacher, a pair of boys abandoned by their mother, and a couple of crusty bachelor farmers. From simple elements, Haruf achieves a novel of wisdom and grace--a narrative that builds in strength and feeling until, as in a choral chant, the voices in the book surround, transport, and lift the reader off the ground.quot; -FROM THE CITATION FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD.
