The Boy Who Stole Attila's Horse, Paperback / softback Book

The Boy Who Stole Attila's Horse Paperback / softback


A brave, original allegory of our modern world'It looks impossible to get out,' he says. And also: 'But we'll get out.'Two brothers, Big and Small, are trapped at the bottom of a well.

They have no food and little chance of rescue. Only the tempting spectre of insanity offers a way out.

As Small's wits fail, Big formulates a desperate plan. With the authority of the darkest fables, and the horrifying inevitability of all-too-real life, Repila's unique allegory explores the depths of human desperation and, ultimately, our almost unending capacity for hope.
