"A haunting, complex, and very beautiful book. Kennedy has a deep understanding of American longing and the inevitable losses associated with that longing and, because he is a powerful artist, is able to make from that loss a wonderful victory: this moving portrait of the human heart examining itself." —George Saunders, author of CivilWarLand in Bad Decline
"Nietzsche's Horse is full of bad luck and surprises; a kind of American life that can turn religion or science or family quickly into a waking dream or nightmare. Christopher Kennedy is a remarkable storyteller, whispering little mysteries to the reader from many rooms in a concave house. Comic, bewildered, and brilliant, Nietzsche's Horse is a riveting book." —Michael Burkard, author of The Fires They Kept
"Kennedy... carves a new space into the genre of American Surrealistic poetry..." —Rain Taxi
