An Allison & Busby Classic - new reissue
Expansive, sprawling, unruly and oversized - like his stomach and everything about him, the memoirs of the most beloved comic figure in the history of literature take the unsuspecting reader into the world of a character so audacious that, apparently, even the Bard himself could not do him justice. Larger-than-life, irascible and still lecherous at the advanced age of eighty-one, Falstaff recounts these outrageously bawdy tales as an antidote to popular legend that are guaranteed to tell you some things you never thought you needed to know about his life and times.
Who killed Hotspur? What really went on at the battle of Agincourt? And what was it that made the wives of Windsor so merry? As we romp through history with this most entertaining of guides, the Middle Ages come alive in a rich tapestry of sights and sounds in another stunning novel from the author of The Late Mr Shakespeare.
