A Breeding Mistake?

Here's a pretty good interview with author and horse-lover Jane Smiley that talks about her history as a horse devotee and experiences as a breeder.

I like Jane Smiley, but never did finish her book A Year at the Races: Reflections on Horses, Humans, Love, Money, and Luck

I tried hard to get through it, but it never really grabbed me. It sits along with other finished and yet-to-be-completed books in a box in my living room (waiting to be unpacked). I know I'll get back to it one day, and I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

Thanks - I missed that interview. I too found A Year at the Races slow going, but I really enjoyed her novel Horse Heaven. It brightened my winter last year considerably.

A belated comment on this, I know, but I loved A Year at the Races--I even wrote a post about it a while back.

Will check out Horse Heaven this winter...
