THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING by T.H. WHITE - A glorious book, and *much* more than a retelling, too. Complex, very personal, moving, funny, wise, sad... A true fav of mine. ~GGK

AS a pre-teen I fell fun love with Sutcliff’s EAGLE OF THE NNTH and WARRIOR SCARLET and many others...A taste for the drama of history, and for the same-yet-different aspects of it was stamped into me early. ~GGK

NEWS OF THE WORLD - Beautifully written, echoes of TRUE GRIT, but very much has its own wise, compassionate tone - and a terrific underlying concept, a protagonist going around north Texas in the later 19th c, reading the news to citizens in small towns… ~GGK
