Word Information - an English dictionary about English vocabulary words and etymologies derived primarily from Latin and Greek word origins The Modern Word - Martha Kinney's "The Fall of the Heartless Horse" The Fall of the Heartless Horse Martha Kinney Akashic Books, 2004, ISBN 1888451734, 170 Pages, Paperback $11.95. [Browse/Purchase] A Book Review & Discussion with Dennis Cooper By Justin Taylor We know why authors like the books they’ve written. The Fall of Heartless Horse, by Martha Kinney, was published by self-described practitioners of “reverse-gentrification of the literary world,” Akashic Books. “I loved the book for a lot of reasons, both because it’s so fucking good and because it was an exciting choice strategically,” Cooper told me. Described on its jacket as “a novella in verse;” prefaced with a dramatis personae; drawing heavily on Scottish legends and songs; filled with mimicries of the style and form of (among others) legal documents and interviews; TFoHH manages to be by turns funny, sinister, and sad. It’s also a unique entry into the LHotB series. TFoHH is the story of a highly dysfunctional family. A word on the poetry, then, is in order. –Justin Taylor 20 May 2005
