The MareLarge Print - 2016 | Large Print edition
Velveteen Vargas is an eleven-year-old Fresh Air Fund kid from Brooklyn. Her host family is in upstate New York: Ginger, a failed artist and recovering alcoholic, and her academic husband, Paul, who wonders what is will mean to "make a difference" in such a contrived situation. Weaving together Velvet's vital inner-city community with this privileged world, The Mare illuminated the couple's shifting relationship with Velvet over several years, as well as Velvet's powerful encounter with an abused, unruly mare at a nearby stable.
