(From the publisher):
A foul-mouthed drunkard, a prudish nun, a jester, a glutton and a monk of dubious learning – these are just some of the crew aboard the Ship of Fools
, a vessel that’s going nowhere fast. Only dimly aware of their predicament, they must tell tales to ward off disaster. As their stories weave around each other they create a sparkling tapestry of ingenuity and imagination.
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…
