Instantly acquire all the knowledge you need to pass as an expert in the world of horse racing. Know what to say, what not to say, what to back, when to bet, and why you should never be tempted to invest in a thoroughbred without enquiring if it has ‘got a leg’. Never again confuse an exacta with a trifecta, a hurdle race with a steeplechase, or an ante post with a winning post. Easily distinguish between ‘going’ that’s ‘good to soft’, or ‘heavy’, or not going at all as in the case of a racecourse that’s just closed. Bask in the admiration of your fellow racing aficionados as you pronounce confidently on a range of turf-related issues, and hold your own against the most arrogant and dismissive of so-called racing experts.

You might feel sure that a horse is not a Flamingo, a Polar Bear, a Tomato, a Teapot, a pair of Bootlaces, a Taxidermist, a Rat Catcher, or a Flea, but you'd be wrong. Racehorse owners often give their horses bizarre names that would seem to make success impossible. Luckily, thoroughbreds are able to defy such handicaps. A Spaniel has won the Derby (1831), a Crow the St Leger (1976), a Butterfly the Oaks (1860) and, difficult to imagine, Oscar Wilde the Welsh National (1958). It's bonkers. Bonkers won at Southwell in 2002. Over the centuries there have been hundreds of thousands of different names bestowed or inflicted on racehorses, and in Fifty Shades Of Hay, David Ashforth has picked out a selection to baffle, surprise, and amuse in equal measure.

**NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER** London, the week before Christmas, 2007. Seven wintry days to track the lives of seven characters: a hedge fund manager trying to bring off the biggest trade of his career; a professional footballer recently arrived from Poland; a young lawyer with little work and too much time to speculate; a student who has been led astray by Islamist theory; a hack book-reviewer; a schoolboy hooked on skunk and reality TV; and a Tube driver whose Circle Line train joins these and countless other lives together in a daily loop. With daring skill, the novel pieces together the complex patterns and crossings of modern urban life, and the group is forced, one by one, to confront the true nature of the world they inhabit. Sweeping, satirical, Dickensian in scope, A Week in December is a thrilling state of the nation novel from a master of literary fiction.
