Baker & Taylor
Presents a new collection of poems along with a novella that combines myth, legend, and folklore with popular culture.

Perseus Publishing
The Village on Horseback features mesmerizing new work from the author of Samedi the Deafness and The Way Through Doors, one of the New Yorker’s Best Books of 2009. This collection of new pieces by experimental writer Jesse Ball is a philosophical recasting of myth and legend. Unearthing parables from the compost heap of oral tradition, folklore, literature, and popular culture, The Village on Horseback can be read as a sort of fabulist’s compendium by an author who has been called charming, lyrical, fanciful, and "disturbingly original."

& Taylor

The novelist and poet behind The Way Through Doors and Vera & Linus presents a new collection of stories and poems, including a Plimpton Prize-winning novella that combines myth, legend and folklore with popular culture.
