Inventive and beautifully told, the plot centers on Griffri, a poet in the court of a Welsh prince, who tells his life story to a Cistercian monk. Part boast and part confession, Griffris words turn into a compelling narrative which is developed through an accumulation of obsessive images, culminating in self-revelation. Both serious and entertaining, the novel examines the limits of our knowledge of the world and of ourselves. Griffri emerges a complex man full of uncertainties, a distinctly modern hero.
