Plainsong

by Kent Haruf

Written in a very low key style, it rapidly captures your attention. It shows great insight into life in rural America,and into the minds of the two boys and two old men. Lovely!

There was no moon. He looked once towards the west, and then stood still. In the sunken vacant house was a flicker of light .... he could see somebody was in the room.
