Narrating in her native Midlands accent, self-proclaimed queer-cripple author Nicola Griffith, diagnosed with MS in 1993, tosses a welcome new character into the uber male world of Arthurian legend. Peretur--an intelligent, strong, and strong-willed young woman--leaves her snug home in the woods, disguises herself as a man, steals a spear, and sets off to join the Knights of the Round Table. As she bests even the best knights, such as Sir Kay and the Red Knight, in single combat, Peretur discovers that she is a girl who prefers girls and falls in with a powerful sorceress. With its rich, poetic prose, Griffith's story entwines nicely with the stories of Thomas Malory, T.H. White, and Mary Stewart. B.P. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
