From the bestselling author of EventideThe Tie That Binds is a powerfully eloquent tribute to the arduous demands of rural America, and of the tenacity of the human spirit. Colorado, January 1977. Eighty-year-old Edith Goodnough lies in a hospital bed, IV taped to the back of her hand, police officer at her door. She is charged with murder. The clues: a sack of chicken feed slit with a knife, a milky-eyed dog tied outdoors one cold afternoon. The motives: the brutal business of farming and a family code of ethics as unforgiving as the winter prairie itself. Here, Kent Haruf delivers the sweeping tale of a woman of the American High Plains, as told by her neighbor, Sanders Roscoe. As Roscoe shares what he knows, Edith's tragedies unfold: a childhood of pre-dawn chores, a mother's death, a violence that leaves a father dependent on his children, forever enraged. Here is the story of a woman who sacrifices her happiness in the name of family--and then, in one gesture, reclaims her freedom.… (més)

Haruf's first published novel, as expected the story was wonderful, but I thought the writing style was completely different from his later work. I find his later writing spare and without unnecessary details, whereas this book was filled with pages detailing one event. But, it's Kent Haruf....I still loved it. I have only one of his novels left to read, I'm going to savor it as it will be the last.'a continuous yes to herself'....so beautiful. ( )

Ogni volta che leggo un libro di Kent Haruf mi sento bene. E questo è un dato di fatto, neppure tanto trascurabile. Mi sento come quando ritrovo Doris Lessing, a casa mia. Sarà la scrittura fluida, senza fronzoli, cornicette o cotillon, la prosa essenziale ma armoniosa, quasi si ascoltasse un canto gregoriano, una musica d'ambiente rilassante. Ma potente, eccome se è potente.

Siamo di nuovo a Holt, o meglio, iniziamo da Holt, visto che questo è il primo in ordine di tempo che narra delle vicende degli abitanti di questo piccolo paese inventato dell'America rurale. Una donna in un letto di ospedale, ormai anziana, piantonata dalla polizia perchè accusata di omicidio. Ma naturalmente non è un poliziesco ma una piccola saga con tutti gli ingredienti per un flusso coinvolgente, una lettura vorace e un retrogusto dolce, quando tutto finisce.
Consigliato a chi ha già letto di Holt, un po' meno a chi inizia da zero con Kent Haruf che in seguito, nella trilogia di Holt e negli altri suoi scritti, si perfeziona nell'armonia e nella scrittura che dona una serena e piacevole lettura. ( )

80-year old Edith is in the hospital with a police guard outside her door. Her “young” neighbour and friend, Sandy, describes her life – as he heard via his father (who was once in love with her) and from as long as he’s known her – leading up to what happened to find her where she is now.

I really liked this. It’s not fast moving, but the beginning sure had me wondering what happened. This is very much like his other books, though. Not a page-turner, but the characters are so well-done that you care about them and want to know what happens. ( )

Ho letto tutti i 4 libri di Haruf , così faccio parte dell'anonimo paese di Holt, dove difficilmente un'italiano si sarebbe fermato. Invece nascosto dietro un albero di carta ho spiato e tifato.... ( )

Having read four of Haruf’s novels before dipping into this, his debut novel, I am immediately struck by two things: how well written this story is, and some stark differences to his later works. If you love Willa Cather’s stories – so far I have only read O’ Pioneers! and My Antonia, both of which are, IMO, fabulous stories – then I think The Tie That Binds may appeal to you. Both Haruf and Cather have a skill for capturing, with eloquence, the lonesomeness of the vast high plains/prairies. Haruf’s story is a story of two families – the Roscoes and the Goodnoughs (with a focus on Edith Goodnough) – and spans some 80 years. While we know right at the start that the story has a tragic event at its root, Haruf’s takes his time telling it, making use of 50 year old Sanders Roscoe as our meandering storyteller. Sanders takes his time because he wants the reader to fully understand the events leading up to that fateful day.

This is a deeply affecting, tragic story with themes of love, loyalty, responsibility and sacrifice. Edith is an amazing character. Her fortitude/ resilience is powerful. So how does this differ from Haruf’s other novels I have read? For me, this story is more focused. Everything dove-tails towards Edith. While Haruf’s stories tend to include difficult family situations, the unrelenting nature of the sadistic/ overbearing influence Edith and her brother endure makes this such a shocking read.

If you are like me and gravitate towards stories, like this one, written in clear, straightforward prose with a raw subject matter that emotionally draws you in, I can highly recommend The Last of the Crazy People by Timothy Findley. ( )
