    READER Â DOC The Mare The MareIn the twilight of a year rich with books about race in America Mary Gaitskill has just published a novel about the knee smashing effects of minority poverty and the corrosive tonic of liberal guilt “The Mare” is not a colossal epic of our era; its vision is precise; its protagonists — all female — are socially invisible But here without a drop of condescension is fiction that pumps blood through the cold facts of ineuality in our countryThe whole story germinates in soil fertilized by good intentions For Velvet an 11 year old Dominican girl in Brooklyn the Fresh Air Fund promises a chance to get away from the city to swim to ride a horse To read the rest of this review go to The Washington Post

    READER Â DOC The Mare The Mare Note this book was reviewed a few years back but as talk of Fall and school starting I wanted to highlight this book which is an excellent young adult book which would be suitable for grades 6 and up highly recommend this bookThis is one of the most powerful books that I’ve read in a very long time Yes it’s a story about a girl and a horse but that is just the tip of what is going on here I hadn’t read Mary Gaitskill before so I was absolutely amazed at her writing Her prose was succinct and yet fluid I’m having trouble describing it because it was very uniue Her characters are so very believable because they are flawed and have many things that they are dealing with besides the interactions with VelvetThe story is told from four perspectives Velvet is an 11 year old from Crown Heights New York what I would refer to as the inner city really dangerous part of town She is a very intelligent but very abused Her mother Sylvia doesn’t speak Englis

    READER Â DOC The Mare The MareA mare and a young girl Two battered souls who found each other and together they conuered the world At first I thought I'm dropping this book as soon as some sentimental emotional manipulation of the reader shows its annoying face I wasn't in the mood for something like Lassy Comes Home in horsy language I was in the mood for a cozy nice relaxing read But no frills no fuzz pleaseWhat a wake up call Alas I turned out to be so deeply involved in the story of the disadvantage 11 year old Dominican girl from Crown Heights Brooklyn who received an opportunity through the Fresh Air Fund to visit a couple in upstate New York for two weeksA field filled with unattended emotional landmines lay waiting for Velvet her single mother Silvia her brother Danté and the couple Paul and Ginger Somewhere in the middle their worlds collided the inner city harshness against the gentle bucolic calmness Ginger's need for children drove her to compete with Silvia for Velvet's attention a

    READER Â DOC The Mare The MareThis review can also be found at Carole's Random LifeI didn't really know much about this story before I decided to give it a try I think I really wanted to get lost in a story that was focused on a horse I did end up getting completely pulled into this story but I uickly found out that this story really isn't about a horse Sure there is a horse in the story but this is really a story about a group of people tied to one another just trying to get through life This book was very different that I thought it would be but it ended up taking me on a fantastic journeyThis story is told from four different points of view For Velvet this book really is a coming of age story Velvet starts the story as an eleven year old Dominican girl from a poor family She goes to stay with a family for a coup

    READER Â DOC The Mare The MareThe Brownsloved each other deeply from the back of the soul with intolerance in daily life– National VelvetA Booktuber I used to follow initially put this book on my radar when he rated this the best book of 2015 and surprised most of his viewers because they didn't think a story about a girl and her horse would hold his attention He is usually drawn to gritty dark and desperate first rate novels That should have been an indicator that this wasn't going to be a sunny modern adaptation of National Velvet like I'd imagined or even a wonderful character study like my favorite modern horse story The Horse Whisperer Gaitskill's novel is sordid violent and riddled with abusive language and graphic scenes of urban life I think it's best you know that up frontso you're prepared The two main characters are Velvet Vargas an eleven year old Dominican American girl from Crown Heights Brooklyn and Ginger a sort of patron whom she meets through a summer program for disadvantag
