    DescriptionLonglisted for the Orange Prize 2012. He planned to steal with these horses, who were all better than they looked on paper. The trick was to get in and get out fast. But could he really pull it off? Could he be that sure, could he count on being that lucky? Listen carefully my dear. Lord of Misrule, he whispered loudly. Lord of Misrule, Margaret. Memorize that name.

    Review quote
    'Such a beautifully written novel... Remarkable' Jane Smiley. 'This novel is so assured, exotic and uncategorizable ... an incontrovertible winner, a bona fide bolt from the blue' New York Times. 'You need no interest in horses or racing to be captivated. Just open the book and start reading' Sunday Telegraph. 'Reminiscent of Steinbeck and Faulkner ... riveting' Daily Mail. 'An exuberant firecracker of a novel' Sunday Times. 'Mesmerising ... Addictive' Independent.
