Hett i hyllan utgår från Monika. Om de där böckerna som stått en evighet i hyllan, men som kanske förtjänar att plockas fram och dammas av.
A foul-mouthed drunkard, a prudish nun, a jester, a glutton and a monk of dubious learning – these are some of the crew aboard THE SHIP OF FOOLS, a vessel becalmed in purgatorial waters. Dimly aware of their predicament, they must tell tales to keep from perceiving it.
A gargantuan nymphomaniac sets out on an odyssey to find her mother. A prince appoints a servant to be his whipping-boy. A wandering minstrel stops at nothing to protect a garden from starving orphans, and a novice enters a labyrinthine world of murder and intrigue…
Bawdy, generously peopled and endlessly inventive, THE SHIP OF FOOLS is a rich treasure chest of a novel, marking the debut of a formidable writing talent.
