Horse Crazy

DUE IN AUGUST: New York Times journalist Sarah Maslin Nir spoke directly to this particular grown woman who has  always dreamed of owning a horse in her essay collection, Horse Crazy. Owning isn't the right word though. That's not what Nir or any of her readers want to do. Experience, sense, understand, relate to–that's more what anyone who reads these essays will see that someone with a love for all things equine really craves. From her early experience as a horse-infatuated toddler knocked from her first ride--to her experiences as a member of the New York City Parks Enforcement Auxiliary Mounted Patrol, Nir captures not only the struggles and triumphs of her own life but also those of the horses she has loved. This is a terrific, intelligent collection! Recommended by Kelly
