Product description


"An interestingly wayward memoir, exploring […] the vibrant mixture of equine beauty and human ugliness to be found on the racetrack" (Jane Shilling Evening Standard)

"A great father-son memoir, and a good book about horses, too" (William Leith, 4 stars Scotsman)

"You needn’t love horses to find this idiosyncratic memoir a joy" (4 stars Lady)

"This is desperately sad, life-affirming and just about wonderful. It is the book every father would want his son to write about him" (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

"As a memoir, an elegy and a piece of investigative journalism, it dazzles" (The Economist)

Book Description

From the critically acclaimed author of Pulphead comes a wise, humorous and often beautiful memoir exploring the relationship between man and horse and the relationship between sons and fathers
