Sarah Maslin Nir has been obsessed with riding horses since she was 2, when her parents put her on a horse in a desperate attempt to get her to sit still. Nir's voice is lively and expressive, and she has marvelous comedic timing. Her joy and comfort in the company of horses is crystal clear. Horses provided her a lifeline when she was a lonely child--even the one horse that always spooked at the noise of a plastic bag. Her father, a Holocaust survivor, viewed every horse show victory as a defeat of Hitler. HORSE CRAZY becomes more than a memoir as Nir explores the curious world of plastic horse model enthusiasts, delves into the forgotten history of black cowboys, and exposes abusive horse trainers. A warmhearted book is raised another notch by an appealing performance. A.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2020]
