Thank you to Texas Monthly Books Editor Jeff Salamon for this notice:

Ghost Horse Thomas McNeely (Gival Press, October 6)
“Last day of fifth grade, Houston, Texas, 1975: the time before Star Wars.” So opens this former Dobie Paisano fellow’s haunting debut novel, which never allows its pop culture references or beautifully rendered sentences to soften the violence that life—his parents’ disintegrating marriage, his classmates’ cruelty, his grandmother’s vindictiveness—visits upon its sensitive protagonist.
