Jaimy Gordon on Her Novel, Lord of Misrule

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Jaimy Gordon discusses her novel, Lord of Misrule, which was the recipient of the 2011 National Book Award. It’s set in the ruthless and often violent world of cheap horse racing, where trainers, jockeys, grooms, hotwalkers, loan sharks and touts all struggle to take an edge, prove their luck, or just survive. It follows five characters throughout a year and four races at Indian Mound Downs, downriver from Wheeling, West Virginia.
