Perestroika in Paris
Perestroika — Paras for short — is a 3-year-old filly thoroughbred who’s just come off a win at a racetrack in Paris. Being a “very curious filly,” she trots away from her stable and then wanders down to Paris. In short order, she’s joined by Frida, a canny German shorthaired pointer whose owner, a vagabond busker, has recently died; Raoul, a sage raven who keeps a perch on a Benjamin Franklin statue; and a pair of squabbling mallards, Sid and Nancy. Jane Smiley's new novel is an adventure that celebrates curiosity, ingenuity, and the desire of all creatures for true love and freedom.
