Description: Spanning two years on the circuit, from Kentucky and California to New York and Paris, "Horse Heaven" puts us among the trainers, track brats, nervy jockeys, billionaire owners, restless wives, gamblers, and hangers-on who populate the endlessly fascinating world of horse racing.

Here is the sixteen-year-old jockey who's got "the hands" and the smarts but is miserable because he is growing too tall ... the haunting, exquisite track wife done in by her lover's flawless physical understanding of horses and women ... the trainer of dazzling integrity and the one who is a complete scoundrel, engaged in still another terrible swindle ... the "animal communicator" who can read horses as they stream images. Above all, here are the wonderfully imagined, magnificent Thoroughbreds themselves -- from the scared filly orphaned at birth, to the huge black stallion who tries to destroy everything, to the brown horse who always wins by a nose, a lovable "claimer" who passes from owner to owner on a heartwrenching journey down from the winner's circle.

Out of these disparate lives, all united through horses, Smiley creates a deeply engaging story of love and longing, greed and corruption, and, poignantly, our mystical bond with animals.
