Award-Winning Poop!

By Linda Hartman
Of all book prizes, the National Book Award is one of the biggest. And the novel that won the N.B.A. this year is called Lord of Misrule by Jaimy Gordon.

This excellent book is about horses and horse-racing. And Ms. Gordon also writes about horse-poop... in an award-winning way!
“Lord of Misrule threw back his head, snorted out dust and rolled his eye at the other cheap horses. His black tail arched and, ugly as Rumpelstiltskin, he let drop great soft nuggets, part gold, part straw, all the way down the ramp.”
