Growing up at the tough Southside of Chicago, I discovered how one can play the sphere. among my rugged good-looks, rock-hard physique, and panty-melting smile, i used to be used to getting my way.

"In its poetic beauty and ethical seriousness, the game of Kings bears the lines of Faulkner, Morrison, and McCarthy. . . . it's a modern masterpiece."—San Francisco Chronicle
Hailed by way of The New Yorker for its “remarkable achievements,” The recreation of Kings is an American story based on a horse and households: one white, a Southern dynasty whose forefathers have been one of the founders of Kentucky; the opposite African-American, the descendants in their slaves.
It is a dauntless narrative that stretches from the fields of the Virginia piedmont to the ample pastures of the Bluegrass, and around the darkish waters of the Ohio River; from the ultimate pictures of the innovative struggle to the resounding clang of the beginning bell at Churchill Downs. As C. E. Morgan unspools a cloth of shared histories, prior and current converge in a Thoroughbred named Hellsmouth, inheritor to Secretariat and a contender for the Triple Crown. Newly faced with each other within the quest for victory, the 2 households needs to face the results in their objectives, as each one is driven---and haunted---by an analogous, enduring query: How distant out of your father are you able to run?
A sweeping narrative of wealth and poverty, racism and rage, the game of Kings is an unflinching portrait of lives forged within the shadow of slavery and an ethical epic for our time.
