The Literary Horse: Great Modern Stories About Horses
by Golden, Lilly, ed.
New York: The Atlantic Monthly Press. Near Fine in Near Fine dj. (c.1995). First Edition. Hardcover. 0-87113-595-7 . [minor shelfwear and light soiling to bottom edge of boards, otherwise tight and clean; jacket shows only light surface wear, mild scuffing]. Horse stories by a wide range of writers -- Rudyard Kipling, Patricia Highsmith, Liam O'Flaherty, Thorne Smith, Clarice Lispector, Saki, John Steinbeck, William Saroyan, Catherine Petroski, Wallace Stegner, Manuel Buaken, Joyce Cary, John O'Hara, Beryl Markham, Gretel Ehrlich, James Salter, Kay Boyle, Elizabeth Spencer, Elizabeth Cook-Lynn, Pam Houston, Tess Slesinger, Rick Bass -- selected to present, in the editor's words, "a modern, complex look at the ageless relationship between horses and people." The jacket blurb also notes that the book "disproves the notion that horse stories are only for children" (which I think I figured out as soon as I saw Patricia Highsmith's name among the contributors). .
