The Talking Horse and the Sad Girl and the Village under the Sea combines bittersweet love-lyrics, lucid and bold new versions of Horace, comic set-pieces, lullabies, wry postmodern shenanigans (including a note from the official board of censors on 18 certificate poetry), and an entire John Buchan novel condensed to five pages.

Consolidating Haddon's reputation as one of our most powerful myth-weavers and spell-makers, The Talking Horse and the Sad Girl and the Village Under the Sea also confirms him as one of the most outrageous and freewheeling imaginations at work in contemporary literature.

    " Coolest cover ever with a moveable paper wheel...unfortunately, I only liked a couple of the poems contained within. "

    " This was actually glorious. I knew Haddon's name was familiar but I couldn't figure it out until I'd read the inside. He has such style with his words. It's always such a nice blend of old classics and new ways of poetry. I loved it. "

    " the title is way cooler than the poems... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Juliet | 6/15/2009

    " I love this book! The poems are so vivid and imaginative and so varied - from the surreal to the quietly insightful, from the funny to the moving. I've read the book twice and may read it again.
