Lancelot Lamar, a disenchanted liberal lawyer, finds himself confined in a mental asylum with memories that don’t seem worth remembering - until a visit from an old friend and classmate gives him the opportunity to recount his journey of dark violence.
It began the day he accidentally discovered he was not the father of his youngest daughter. That discovery touched off his obsession to reverse the degeneration of modern America and begin a new age of chivalry and romance. With ever increasing fury, Lancelot would become a shining knight, not of romance - but of revenge.
“A modern knight-errant on a quest after evil…Convincing and chilling.” (The New York Times Book Review)
“A funny and scarifying jeremiad on the modern age. Lancelot is easy to read and hard to forget.” (Time)
“A fine novel…Percy is a seductive writer attentive to sensuous detail and such a skillful architect of fiction that the very discursiveness of his story informs it with energy and tension.” (Newsweek)
