Black Beauty is a kid’s book isn’t it?
Student Anna is writing about the mythology of the horse and the absence of the author in literary history. Because no-one cares about female Victorian writers like Anna Sewell.
But there’s a real horse in the house. And it’s hungry and distressed.

Real Beauty is about as surreal as it gets!
