The Acts of King Arthur

Um, okay, who knew John Steinbeck wrote an adaptation of the King Arthur legend? Not me! But it sounds sorta mythically awesome in its own right, doesn’t it? The lost Excalibur of YA fiction! Bring it on!

Joshua Glenn in the Boston Globe says:

Still, like everything Steinbeck wrote, the book teaches us about regional economic development, gender roles, class structure, and man’s inhumanity to man… while remaining a gripping read.

Ha ha — Steinbeck, the poet laureate of regional economic development. Awesome.

Uhm, I've never read it, and never had much interest in it, but I knew. (I did work in a bookstore, after all.)
