Neri, G.

Grand Theft Horse

(2) YA Illustrated by Corban Wilkin. Neri's comics-format "second-hand memoir" is about his cousin Gail Ruffu, a former horse trainer who horse-napped thoroughbred Urgent Envoy to rescue him from racing on a fractured leg. Neri details events preceding the fateful Christmas Eve evening and the legal battles that followed. Expressive, dynamic brown-and-white ink panels bring immediacy to the emotional and financial turmoil Ruffu endured. The intense, candid story underscores the risks and rewards of uncompromised activism.
