"'The best living American novelist.' Observer 'The strange, compelling and mysterious universe of horse racing has never before been depicted with such verve and originality, such tenderness and exuberance. Massive, thrillingly articulated, unfailingly intelligent and warmly humorous. She is the most perfect vindication of the realist novel, of the speaking voice. In her sensuous responsiveness to the facts of the world, her cool, amused, analytical gaze, she has started to look like the best living American novelist.' Observer"
