Product description

Review


'Vividly illuminates the arcane world of the racetrack over a period of some 70 years...It is clear that [Murnane's] creative and spiritual life is supported by the colours, metaphors and personalities of the track.'--Daily Telegraph

'Something for the Pain is not about great events. It is, however a great read.'--Inside Racing

'A memoir of horse racing that speaks of triumphs and tragedies, of the infinite shades of friendship and romance, of the precision and persistence of memory, and - it its characteristically calm, direct prose as much as its contents - of virtue.'--Times Literary Supplement, Best of 2015
--This text refers to the paperback edition.
