"Thomas Berger brings his own unique and brilliant wit tot he ancient legend of good King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Embellishing rather than altering Mallory's work, he bestows news, often bawdy life into these timeless tales of knights, jousting and damsels in distress. All the familiar characters are here: Arthur, Guinevere, Launcelot and Merlin but Bergers's inventive pen breathes new human qualities into these noble figures whose moral frailties cause their ruin."
