Village on Horseback , Prose and Verse 2003-2008

Village on Horseback , Prose and Verse 2003-2008
$18.00

From the author of A Cure for Suicide and Census comes a philosophical recasting of myth and legend, folklore and popular culture: a fabulist's compendium of poetry and prose.

Jesse Ball--long-listed for the National Book Award, a finalist for the New York Public Library's Young Lions Fiction Award, and named one of Granta's best young American novelists--is one of the most interesting, lyrical, fanciful, and "disturbingly original" (Chicago Tribune) writers working today. And The Village on Horseback is one of his most dazzling and varied works. These experimental pieces--including the Paris Review's Plimpton Prize-winning novella "The Early Deaths of Lubeck, Brennan, Harp & Carr"--ask the reader not to imagine the world for what it is, but for what it could be: a blank tableau on which a spirited imagination can conjure tales out of, seemingly, nothing.

The Village on Horseback is an unmissable treat, a book of voyages to be taken on journeys far and wide.
