Many astonishing and affecting things happen at the racetrack, and the mysterious universe of horse racing, passionate, cold-hearted, pure, corrupt, is woven into a marvelous tapestry of joy and love, chicanery, folly, greed, and reckless courage. Spanning two years on the circuit, from Kentucky and California to New York and Paris, Horse Heaven, puts us among trainers, nervey jockeys, billionaire breeders, and restless track wives.

Listener Opinions

    " Jane Smiley can and does deliver fine satirical novels and this one set in the world of horse racing is quite a page turner. She creates characters large than life and truly open to ridicule mixed with compassion. Don't like the horse world, neither did I but a friend convinced me I should try and Smiley's humour and her willingness to create a complete world in fiction sucked me in. "

    " Insightful writer who says it like you feel but never seems to be able to say yourself. Creative story. Not much character resolution. "

    " This is an enjoyable read and, once again, Jane Smiley juggles many characters and plot lines expertly. If you love horses and/or horse racing, this novel is an exceptional pleasure to read. "

    " Even if you aren't a horse girl like me, this is an incredible book. One of those books that makes you feel like you're living in the story. "
