Lord of Misrule by Jaimy Gordon At the center of the novel is Tommy Hansel, a horse trainer with a get-rich-quick scheme that he feels cannot fail. He plans to enter "sure-fire" winners in claiming races, benefit from the long odds, then get out of town quickly. Nothing, of course, goes according to plan, especially since everyone seems on to his scheme, and the horses aren't as cooperative as Tommy would like them to be. Complicating the issue is the quirky, intelligent Maggie Koderer, new to the horse race business but nonetheless Tommy's love. Maggie is college educated but is drawn to the seamy underbelly of the track and the broken-down beauty of the horses. By the end of the novel none of the characters quite have what they want, but most of them get what they deserve. Lord of Misrule by Jaimy Gordon explores the writing about the races themselves which is a tour de force of energy and esprit.
