Brooklyn By the Book: Mary Gaitskill
The Mare, the long-awaited new novel from the critics' favorite Mary Gaitskill, is a raw, vital American story. Velveteen Vargas is an 11-year-old, Fresh Air Fund kid from Brooklyn, sent to upstate New York. What follows is the story of her ever evolving relationship with her host family--Ginger, a failed artist on the edge of alcoholism, and Paul, a jaded academic--and a stable of horses down the road. With the same energy that charged her books Don't Cry and Veronica, Gaitskill's novel is a powerful take on contemporary racial and socioeconomic issues, framed around the classic story of a girl and her horse.

The Brooklyn by the Book series is made possible in part with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
