The follow-up to last year's critically acclaimed anthology Woof. This time, the book focuses on the horse as it manifests in myths, legends and fairytales. The horse has been looked up to, admired and respected – as a friend and helper, as the animal of the gods, as a creator and savior, but first and foremost as our indispensable companion.
Giddy-up is a fantastical journey through four thousand years and over five continents, written in quiet literary trot or tremendous canter – always spurred on by the curious and exploratory storytelling that is particular to Tor Åge Bringsværd.
