Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Mark Bramhall

Fiction • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Listeners will rejoice that narrator Mark Bramhall returns to narrate Kent Haruf's bittersweet swan song to his beloved town of Holt, Colorado. This short audiobook focuses on the characters Addie Moore and Louis Waters, now in their 70s and living alone, years after their spouses' deaths. Bramhall's soothing cadences and tender tones bring out the full range of emotions experienced by the neighbors as they find a way to mitigate their loneliness while maintaining their dignity and independence. Despite small-town gossip and the reactions of grown children, Addie and Louis want nothing more than to enjoy comfortable companionship through the uncertainties of aging. Bramhall's unhurried performance allows listeners time to absorb the richness of the couple's newfound friendship and the sadness of the roadblocks they're forced to navigate. C.B.L.
