Read in January, 1996

Smiley somehow makes this sprawling, wide-ranging book also feel tightly constructed. We learn about the vast array of horses involved in racing and their many personalities and the vast array of humans involved in racing those horses and their many personalities. And we are passionately involved in every one of them.

An interest in horse racing increases the enjoyment, but is not necessary. An interest in human passions is enough.
