    WOUNDED.

    Edition: First printing.

    St. Paul, MN: Graywolf Press, (2005). Hardcover first edition - A novel by this African American author which explores the consequences of hatred in a divided world. "Training horses is dangerous - a head-to-head confrontation with 1,000 pounds of muscle and little sense takes courage, but more importantly patience and smarts. It is these same qualities that allow John and his uncle Gus to live in the beautiful high desert of Wyoming. A black horse trainer is a curiosity, at the very least, but a familiar curiosity in these parts. It is the brutal murder of a young gay man, however, that pushes this small community to the teetering edge of fear and tolerance." Everett is a consistently interesting and provocative novelist. 207 pp. ISBN: 1-555974279.
