Good Reading in December: “A curious racehorse and lonely German pointer named Frida”

From a New York Times story by Joumana Khatib headlined “Seven New Titles Due in December”:

If you’re looking for a feel-good escape, try this new novel by Smiley, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author. This time Smiley’s hero is a curious racehorse named Paras, who escapes her stall and makes her way over to the Place du Trocadéro. There, Paras strikes up a friendship with a lonely German pointer named Frida, who’s unusually skilled at looking after herself. Plenty of other Parisians, human and animal, show Paras compassion and help her find her way in the city.
