    Shortlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction Shortlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize Shortlisted for the James Tait Black Fiction Prize Winner LES MER of the Kirkus fiction prize `You and I are family. Blood and treasure. Listen to me, I created this world with my own two hands, and I am going to leave it all to you' Hellsmouth, an indomitable thoroughbred filly, runs for the glory of the Forge family, one of Kentucky's oldest and most powerful dynasties. Henry Forge has partnered with his daughter, Henrietta, in an endeavour of raw obsession: to breed the next superhorse. But when Allmon Shaughnessy, an ambitious young black man, comes to work on their farm after a stint in prison, the violence of the Forges' history and the exigencies of appetite are brought starkly into view. Entangled by fear, prejudice, and lust, the three tether their personal dreams of glory to the speed and grace of Hellsmouth. A spiralling tale of wealth and poverty, racism and rage, The Sport of Kings is an unflinching portrait of lives cast in shadow by the enduring legacy of slavery. A vital new voice, C. E. Morgan has given life to a tale as mythic and fraught as the South itself - a moral epic for our time.
