Hank Morgan, cracked on the head by a crowbar in nineteenth-century Connecticut, wakes to find himself in King Arthur's England, facing a world whose idyllic surface masks fear, injustice, and ignorance. With the agility of Mark Twain's unique virtuosity, this acrobatic tour de force moves from broad comedy to biting social satire; from the pure joy of wild high jinks to deeply probing insights into the nature of man. The reader falls under the book's enchantment and finds that the grim truths of Twain's Camelot strike a resounding contemporary note.
