Description

“Combines the fascination of a fairy tale . . . with beautifully defined characters and an underlying seriousness of purpose that makes it something far more important  . . . Freddy’s Book is the work of a master storyteller.”—Anne Tyler

In a gloomy mansion in Madison, Wisconsin, a sheltered and sensitive young man slips a visiting professor his secret manuscript—a staggering and beautiful fantasy of knights, knaves, and fools, a rich tale of timeless battles with the devil himself over power and destiny.

John Gardner (1933–1982) was a major figure of twentieth-century letters.
