Read in October, 2006

A story about Percival looking for Lady Fayre (in this case a girl named Angelica Papps) and finding all kinds of craziness in academia (and in Amsterdam). It's about conferences and questing and your typical knight errant. Don't miss the full-scale re-enactment of The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. I read this last year when I was missing being an English major. It made me glad that I didn't sleep with my professors.

P.S. This book has been assigned as the pre-reading for an English class I'm taking so I'm reading it again. Unfortunately GoodReads doesn't seem to allow for re-reading.
