A Horse Named Sorrow, and Faun, are his two latest releases.
A Horse Named Sorrow is simply, inexorably beautiful. It is sexy, cinematic, the prose itself an absolute joy to read, and often funny as holy hell. It is, at the same time, one of the saddest works I have ever read: piercing, poignant, and memorable.”—Maureen Seaton, author of Sex Talks to Girls: A Memoir
"This magical tale about a boy unexpectedly turning into a faun is funny, poignant and erotic. Faun offers a wise meditation on our relationship to the earth as well as each other—and to our sexuality, which is the 'greenest' part of us all." —Mark Thompson.
