One of the best books I’ve read so far this year is Eric Luper’s Bug Boy and today is the day it is released out into the wild!
When’s the last time you read a page turning book about horse racing in the 1930s told from the point of view of a young up and coming jockey? A book that’s about a dirty and corrupt industry and some of the people who get involved with it out of love for the horses and for the life. Yes, there’s even some romance in it.
I love historicals and this one is particularly fine. Run out and get it now! Or if you’re broke, get someone you know has money to buy it so you can borrow it. Or see if you can get your library to order a copy.
You all need this book.
