About this product
- DescriptionAn ambitious homage to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, The Brubury Tales (Illustrated Edition) takes Chaucer's story and frame to Los Angeles just after the riots in 1992, where seven security guards on the graveyard shift swap tales in an impromptu storytelling competition for Christmas vacation time. Written entirely in rhyming verse, the tales themselves are poetic updates of classic stories by Dostoevsky, Dickens, Boccaccio, O Henry, Poe, Twain, Gilman, Crane, Saki, Anderson, Bierce, and even Khayyam's Rubaiyat. Along with 11 original illustrations by Keith Draws, the book also contains a special foreword by California literary legend, Carolyn See, book reviewer for The Washington Post and bestselling author of Handyman and There Will Never Be Ather You.
