A Quick Summary...

The Goddess in Love with a Horse is a magical novel. It tells a story of Sicilians who migrate from Italy to America but never lose their intimacy with ancient gods. Mirabelli’s characters are paragons of beauty and superhuman desire that might have stepped out of Ovid’s Metamorphoses.”—Robert Viscusi

The Goddess in Love with a Horse marries the long reach of history to the present moment, the real to the surreal, the romantic to the workaday world—and does so with great grace throughout. Eugene Mirabelli crosses the Atlantic by sea and air and on a magic carpet woven out of language; his wit and passionate brio can transport us all.”—Nicholas Delbanco

“Eugene Mirabelli has plucked the unforgettable Terri Heart [The Passion of Terri Heart] from one of the most painful intersections of recent history, a time when a pure, brilliant love met the evil of a corrupting culture. Terri is a lovable tart and saint, rendered unforgettable by Mirabelli’s wonderful writing. This touching, deft, and suspenseful novel should take its place on that lovely shelf alongside Lolita.”—Andrei Codrescu, NPR
