Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

B format edition of Jane Smiley's widely acclaimed novel, set on the horse racing circuit, and peopled with trainers, track brats, horse-obsessed girls, jockeys and millionaire breeders. "Readers must let the brilliant style run away with them and cling on, gasping but exhilarated right up to the finishing line" "Sunday Telegraph".

Synopsis:

"It's not true", says a character in Jane Smiley's funny, passionate, and brilliant new novel of horse racing, "that anything can happen at the racetrack", but many astonishing and affecting things do — and in Horse Heaven, we find them woven into a marvelous tapestry of joy and love, chicanery, folly, greed, and derring-do. The strange, compelling, sparkling and mysterious universe of horse racing that has fascinated generations has never before been depicted with such verve and originality, such tenderness, such clarity, and, above all, such sheer exuberance.

Synopsis:

Set in the world of horse racing, this novel puts us amongst trainers, horse-obsessed girls, billionaire breeders and restless track wives, painting a picture of a world that is passionate, cold-hearted, pure and corrupt.
