2013 Ferro-Grumley Award (Horse Named Sorrow), 2013 Outstanding Mid-Career Novelist Prize, 2004 Ferro-Grumley Award (Through It Came Bright Colors), 2004 Violet Quill Award (Through It Came Bright Colors)

“A Horse Named Sorrow is simply, inexorably beautiful. It is sexy, cinematic, the prose itself an absolute joy to read, and often funny as holy hell. It is, at the same time, one of the saddest works I have ever read: piercing, poignant, and memorable.”
—Maureen Seaton, author of Furious Cooking

“Powerful is an understatement. What Healey has created here is a new classic in literary fiction, along the lines of On the Road and Giovanni’s Room, which will echo in the heart of his readers like the fading encore of the perfect song.”
—Lambda Book Report

“This magical tale about a boy unexpectedly turning into a faun is funny, poignant and erotic. Faun offers a wise meditation on our relationship to the earth as well as each other—and to our sexuality, which is the ‘greenest’ part of us all.”
—Mark Thompson, author of the Gay Spirit, Gay Soul, Gay Body trilogy

“Shows us men and women whose lives have been, or are about to be, forever altered by love. . . . SHARP, EMPATHIC, AND UNFORGETTABLE.”
—Bernard Cooper, author of The Bill from My Father

“Trebor Healey’s writing is suffused with the purest emotion, the bravest, funniest tone, and the perfect balance of poetics, daring, and charm.”
—Joy Nicholson, author of Tribes of Palos Verdes
