Four Dead Horses

Four Dead HorsesOn May 1, 1982, eighteen year old Martin Oliphant watches a horse drown off the shore of Lake Michigan—the first of four equine corpses marking the trail that will lead Martin out of the small minded small town of Pierre, Michigan, onto the open ranges of Elko, Nevada, and into the open arms, or at least open mics, of the cowboy poets who gather there to perform. Along the way, he nurtures a dying mother, who insists the only thing wrong with her is tennis elbow; corrals a demented father, who believes he’s Father Christmas; assists the dissolute local newspaper editor; and serves stints as horse rustler and pet mortician. For thirty years, Martin searches for an escape route to the West, to poetry, and to his first love, the cowgirl Ginger, but never manages to get much farther than the city limits of his Midwestern hometown—that is, until a world famous cow horse dies while touring through Pierre, and Martin is tapped to transport it.

“Sparks writes with ecstatic generosity of spirit, wicked humor, and doesn’t flinch as she stares down the sometimes tragedy of everyday American living. Martin Oliphant is a loveable schlub who wants to make his life a little grander and poetic, like the cowboy poetry he so adores, and I was rooting for him the whole way. How rare to find a book so savagely smart while also so full of compassion for its aspiring hero. Four Dead Horses is a triumph and a delight.”
—CJ Hauser, author of Family of Origin

“This brilliant debut is a perfect balance of smart satire, plaintive poetry, dreadful loss, and humorous escapism that will whiplash you all the way to its unexpected and delightful conclusion. Four Dead Horses is already one of my favorite books of 2021.”
