Lyn Lifshin‘s poetry collection Lost in the Fog, to be published by Finishing Line Press, is now available for pre-order.
The poems in Lost in the Fog are about the blue collar $13,000 weanling and $18,000 yearling that got his name the day his owner literally lost him in the fog; they will take you back to the fall of 2006 when The Fog and Barbaro were held in so many hearts. The dark mahogany horse with that striking splash of white won ten straight races and he was favored at every start. But how amazing a warrior he was was still unfolding. As one of the fastest horses in the world, he had beaten track records at races all over the country. He was in wild demand as a stallion. In the summer of 2006, the fairy tale turned upside down and The Fog spent his last days pampered and surrounded by everything those who adored him could do to make him comfortable and happy.
