The early reads and reviews are coming in great! What a relief....

Ann Patchett: “Willy Vlautin writes about people overlooked by society and overlooked by literature. In THE HORSE, he tells the story of a tenderhearted man who has a steady talent and a crushing addiction. It is both a work of extraordinary compassion and a really great novel.”

Booklist: “Acclaimed novelist and songwriter Vlautin brilliantly blends his two vocations into a powerful, moving character study of a man imbued with a deep sadness….The novel itself feels like a classic song, a lament of a lonesome balladeer, resulting in a singular masterpiece. Vlautin has composed another classic.”
