“A beautiful, moving novel, cut from the American heartwood.” —Ursula K. Le Guin, author of Lavinia and The Unreal and the Real

“I read Falling from Horses in two gulps . . . I could not have loved it more.” — Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Bookclub and We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves “Clear-eyed, breathtaking . . . A moving story filled with heart and insight.” — Gail Tsukiyama, author of The Samurai’s Garden “A hypnotic read.” — Kirkus Reviews
In 1938, nineteen-year-old ranch hand Bud Frazer sets out for Hollywood, his sights set on becoming a stunt rider in the movies—and rubbing shoulders with the great screen cowboys of his youth. On the long bus ride south from Echol Creek, Bud meets a young woman who also harbors dreams of making it in the movies, not as a starlet but as a writer. Lily Shaw is bold and outspoken, more confident than her small frame and bookish looks seem to allow. The two strike up an unlikely kinship that will carry them through their tumultuous days in Hollywood. Through the wide eyes and lofty dreams of two people trying to make their mark on the world, Molly Gloss weaves a remarkable tale of humans and horses, hope and heartbreak, told by one of the most winning narrators ever to walk off the page.

From the Back Cover:

“I read Falling from Horses in two gulps. The writing is gorgeous, the setting so beautifully realized, both time and place, the narrative voice unforgettable, and all the characters so real and compelling. Tremendous, page-turning . . . I could not have loved it more.” — Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves and The Jane Austen Book Club
 
“The story of a boy growing up into a man by way of ambition, adventure, catastrophe, love, and grief. A beautiful, moving novel, cut from the American heartwood.” — Ursula K. Le Guin, author of Lavinia and The Unreal and the Real: Selected Stories
 
“Clear-eyed, breathtaking . . . A moving story filled with heart and insight by an author whose love of the American landscape rings loudly through each page.” — Gail Tsukiyama, author of A Hundred Flowers and The Samurai’s Garden
 
Falling from Horses is a beautifully crafted story of the friendship that develops between two young people as they try to make it in the movies. Molly Gloss makes the little-seen life of a movie stuntman and a back lot script girl come alive in this entertaining and often touching tale.” — Phillip Margolin, author of Worthy Brown’s Daughter
 
“Molly Gloss is always exploring that dangerous place where reality and imagination combine to form the American West, and never more than in this book, plunging as it does into the heart of the dream machine. She has a tremendous gift for bringing a situation alive, so be ready: you’re about to live these lives. It’s a great experience.” — Kim Stanley Robinson, author of Shaman and 2312
