The Once and Future King
By T.H. White
T.H. White’s masterful retelling of the saga of King Arthur is a fantasy classic as legendary as Excalibur and Camelot, and a poignant story of adventure, romance, and magic that has enchanted readers for generations.
Last week Christine and I were searching the shelves at home looking for a new book to read aloud to one another. We disagreed on one volume after another, and then I came across my fragile, yellowing copy of The Once and Future King, which I read decades and (nearly) decades ago. We’re now enjoying this modern classic, which is full of anachronism but still is poignant enough to make me think of old things now lost.
