Sport of KingsBook - 2016
A sprawling family saga set in Kentucky that combines southern gothic with the drama of horse racing from a brilliant young author named one of The New Yorker's "20 Best Writers Under 40." One of the oldest and proudest families in Kentucky, the Forge family is as mythic as the history of the South itself. Descended from one of the first settlers to brave the Gap, Henry Forge is attempting to blaze a new path, breeding horses on the family's crop farm. His daughter becomes his partner in the endeavour, although she has desires of her own. Their conflict escalates when Allmon Shaughnessy, a black man fresh from prison, comes to work in the stables.
