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.

It may sound like a cliche that your wedding day, the one that cost you a fortune in time money and stress, should be the most memorable day of your life. Well in theory anyway it is a unique one-off event ideally only happening once in your lifetime. All dry wit aside it should be an extraordinary day. No matter if it is a small or a grandiose event the day should be quite remarkable.
