William Munns

about this book: Without a single cliche character or plot point within a country mile of this story, Hopeless recounts the tale of an amazing racehorse who never wins a race. He strolls casually out of the starting gate, looks around to see if there's anything of interest to stare at, and if he decides to run, he starts slowly and builds speed like a freight train. But when he finally chooses to run, at a special 20 furlong invitational race at Belmont Park, he electrifies the 100,000 spectators with a demonstration of speed and endurance the like of which they've never seen or even heard about before. His unorthodox racing behavior unites and literally transforms the lives of people who themselves once felt worthless or hopeless. For any reader who has ever felt discouraged, unappreciated, belittled, or spitefully underestimated, this is a book for you.

The book also explores the sad and sometimes shocking saga of Chinese immigrants in America, because the owner of Hopeless is a fifth generation Chinese-American woman, and her family has experienced just about every unjust and hateful historical prejudice inflicted upon the Chinese immigrants since 1882. But they focused not on what was denied, but what opportunities were still open to them, and their patience against the prejudice is most admirable.
