From Argentina to Italy, the intense, metaphysical and poetic story of a gardener in love, by Italy's most prominent writer. "A man's life lasts as long as three horses. You have already buried the first." Somewhere along the coastline of Italy, a man passes his days in solitude and silence, tending a garden and reading books of travel and adventure. Through these simple routines he seeks to quiet the painful memories of the past: a life on the run from Argentina's Dirty War; a young bride 'disappeared' by the military; a terrifying escape through the wilds of Patagonia. Yet everywhere he turns, new life is pulsing, ready to awaken his senses, like the force that drives his fruit trees into bloom. People and events from the past and present migrate into patterns assigned by a metaphysical geometry. A woman of the world re-introduces him to love. An African day laborer teaches him the meaning of gratitude. In this intense narrative, every acute observation, every nuance, becomes a means of salvation. Using a language that is both gripping and contemplative, Three Horses is an unforgettable tale. Praise for The Sea of Memory: "Poetic . . . charged with anger and desire." -The New York Times Book Review "Alluring . . . shimmeringly lyrical." -Publishers Weekly From the Trade Paperback edition.

Writer for The Frankie Howerd Show, Carry On Sergeant, The Bed-Sitting Room, The Goon Show, and many more, John Antrobus brings his delightfully absurd skill to World War I, with the help of three horses. "We all know horses stopped talking out loud thousands of years ago, probably because of ones like George. When he stopped communicating his scrambled ideas about Empire free trade, and he was probably right, the Germans were worried about being squeezed out of the world markets — though I don’t even know if he said it — the silence became filled with a steady rumbling sound from the direction of the Front. The artillery barrage we were laying down meant an attack was imminent. Even miles away we could feel the ground vibrate beneath our hooves."
