Burroughs as it probes the messier forms of sexual awakenings."-"Details" ""House Rules" . . . ventures off the map into an uncharted, quite terrifying strip of psychological badlands."-"The Village Voice" The narrator of Lewis' amazing first novel is 15-year-old Lee, whose story is both a fascinating and disturbing look at the dark side of show horse riding. With extraordinary insight, Heather Lewis describes a world she knew from the inside.

Heather Lewis is the author of two other novels, "Notice" and "The Second Suspect," In 2002, she took her own life at the age of 40.
