Sweet William : a memoir of Old Horse by John Hawkes( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and Dutch and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Hawkes (author of thirteen previous novels, including The Lime Twig, Adventures in the Alaskan Skin Trade, Virginie, and The Blood Oranges) is one of American fiction's most honored, irascible - and most unpredictable - talents. Now Hawkes delivers what is destined to become his most popular novel, the autobiography of a wise, witty, unforgettable ... horse. Sweet William is fresh and lively, a completely compelling reading experience, and a truly human, humane tale. In this anthropomorphic odyssey, Hawkes takes us into the rough world of Old Horse from his Dickensian youth (marked by the death of his beloved dam), through his years on the racetrack of life, to his relationship with Master, the man whose kindness transforms his beastly life. Old Horse is a figure whose trek through the world's multitude of shifting circumstances symbolizes all the tests and challenges faced by every beast. Hawkes brings real heart and moments of savage humor to this equine saga
