A Horse Named Sorrow (University of Wisconsin Press)
Faun (Lethe Press)
Award-winning novelist, short story writer, and poet Trebor Healey returns to Skylight to read and sign his two new novels.
“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
“A Horse Named Sorrow
is a great love story, one with political vibrations, the tragic
tenderness of Leonard Cohen’s early LPs andnovels, and the manic queer
energy of William Burroughs’ The Wild Boys.” —Kevin Killian, author of Impossible Princess
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."
Trebor Healey is author of the novel Through It Came Bright Colors,
a selection of the InsightOut Book Club and the winner of both the
Violet Quill Award and the Publishing Triangle’s Ferro-Grumley Award for
Fiction. His other books include the novel Faun, the short story collection A Perfect Scar, and a volume of poetry, Sweet Son of Pan.
