Details

Jesse Ball is the 2023 Kapnick Foundation Distinguished Writer-in-Residence in the Creative Writing Program at UVA.


"The Village on Horseback" features mesmerizing new work from the author of "Samedi the Deafness" and "The Way Through Doors, " one of the "New Yorker's" Best Books of 2009. This collection of new pieces by experimental writer Jesse Ball is a philosophical recasting of myth and legend. Unearthing parables from the compost heap of oral tradition, folklore, literature, and popular culture, "The Village on Horseback" can be read as a sort of fabulist's compendium by an author who has been called charming, lyrical, fanciful, and "disturbingly original."
