Freddy's Book - John Gardner

“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.
