Kurzbeschreibung

23. Oktober 2012
Selection, Over the Rainbow Project, GLBT Round Table of the American Library Association Finalist, General Fiction, Lambda Literary Awards Winner, Ferro-Grumley Award for LGBT Fiction, Publishing Triangle Winner, Duggins outstanding Mid-Career novelist Award, Lambda Literary Foundation Award-winning novelist Trebor Healey depicts San Francisco in the 1980s and '90s in poetic prose that is both ribald and poignant, and a crossing into the American West that is dreamy, mythic, and visionary. When troubled twenty-one-year-old Seamus Blake meets the strong and self-possessed Jimmy (just arrived in San Francisco by bicycle from his hometown in Buffalo, New York), he feels his life may finally be taking a turn for the better. But the ensuing romance proves short-lived as Jimmy dies of an AIDS-related illness. The grieving Seamus is obliged to keep a promise to Jimmy: "Take me back the way I came." And so Seamus sets out by bicycle on a picaresque journey with the ashes, hoping to bring them back to Buffalo. He meets truck drivers, waitresses, college kids, farmers, ranchers, Marines, and other travelers--each one giving him a new perspective on his own life and on Jimmy's death. When he meets and becomes involved with a young Native American man whose mother has recently died, Seamus's grief and his story become universal and redemptive.

Pressestimmen

""A Horse Named Sorrow" is a great love story, one with political vibrations, the tragic tenderness of Leonard Cohen's early LPs andnovels, and the manic queer energy of William Burroughs' "The Wild Boys"."--Kevin Killian, author of "Impossible Princess"

5.0 von 5 Sternen True Queer West 20. Dezember 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It's hard to imagine I could like this book any more than I already do. At it's simplest, it's a lyrical road trip journey, the fulfillment of a deathbed promise everyman Seamus makes to his lover, the charismatic Jimmy - that he will take his ashes back home to Buffalo, NY, from San Francisco the way Jimmy came - which, in this case, means on a bicycle named Chief Joseph.

But it's so much more - rife with themes which include young male queer love (it's sometimes hard to remember in your 50s how horny you were, 24/7, in your 20s!), growing up in the 60s in a one-parent household, the horrors of AIDS in places like San Francisco, and the resulting movements like ACT UP; the long and bloody history of the US and Native Americans, as well as spirituality and an overwhelming sensuality that colors the entire work.

It made me laugh, it made me cry (a lot - as much as for those who died of AIDS as my own lost youth). It reminded me of the wonder and the loneliness of being on the road. I saw my own years in SF in the characters. I challenge any reader to feel the same way about riding BART again after reading this book!

A Horse Named Sorrow is also very much about the American West and the paradoxes to be found there, the fear and beauty, the loneliness and solace, the unforgiving nature of the land but also the redemption in confronting it. Healey does call his character Seamus a "lost soul," and indeed, at times he reminded me of the character of Ennis Del Mar of "Brokeback Mountain," a man on a search for that one crucial piece of his heart that's gone missing.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Tender but Predictable Tale 28. Mai 2013
Von TeeJay - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Easy to feel for Seamus and his mourning Jimmy, but the road trip became tedious and repetitive. Too convenient an ending for a story that eventually goes nowhere.

I did love the main characters, but their interactions were the only gripping aspects of the novel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Remarkable book! 31. März 2013
Von PTR - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
What a remarkable story! I felt like I was experiencing the journey with Seamus. This can rarely be accomplished, except by a gifted author. I read Mr. Healey's novel Through It Came Bright Colors many years ago and was equally impressed. When I began reading this one I thought I would highlight or underline some of the soulful sayings and expressive comments, but I soon discovered I'd have most of the book marked. I'll opt for reading it again. Overall it was a great book about a young man learning about life, death, love and all the experiences each of us has in our lifetime to make us who we are. I'd highly recommend that you read it and experience it for yourself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just an amazing book!! 28. November 2012
Von Chuckles - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is one of the best love stories I've EVER read! The story of two young men, Jimmy, a vegabond who left Buffalo, N.Y., in search of his "tribe" in San Francisco to die (after learning he was HIV-positive), meets another roaming soul, Seamus. The two fall madly in love, becoming soulmates as well as lovers. But Jimmy dies (early in the book, so I'm not giving away any big plot secret away here). His last request is to have his cremated ashes returned "home"--back to Buffalo.
The story, so beautifully written by Trebor Healey (as ALL of his books are!!) is about Seamus's adventure(s) enroute; keeping the promise to the love of his life. He is riding the same bicycle Jimmy rode across country, and Seamus meets several characters along the way, most of whom have an enormous impact on him, especially one young man who ends up changing Seamus's life in surprising ways.
With crisp, sharp prose, Healey plants the reader smack dab in the center of it all. And as you turn the pages, you can't help learning something about yourself. This is a remarkable, original tale of love, lust, loyalty, respect, grief, sadness, joy, and beauty all rolled up like a magic carpet ride that you hope will never end.
When I reached the end I actually thought my Kindle had 'jammed' or something had happened. I shut it off to 'reboot' it, thinking--HOPING!--there was more. But that's one of the "lessons" of the story, too: there is always a beginning, a middle, and an end, like it or not.
This book changed me in ways I never thought a book could--for the better.
You WILL NOT be sorry ordering this story, no matter the format. It's just one hell of a ride!
