Yeah, not a very imaginative title, I know.
Anyhow, just got an email from Borders, and there’s a book out called Fool by Christopher Moore, and it’s a retelling of King Lear through the eyes of Pocket, the king’s jester. There’s an excerpt here—don’t know if it’s all or part of chapter one. I’m thinking I’ll have to get this book and read the whole thing.
Warning: the language is a bit bawdy, but not excessively so.
