George R. R. Martin was asked in one of his recent interviews what books he has on his shelf at home. One of the authors he named was Maurice Druon. I had never heard of this guy, but after reading this interesting obituary of him, I’m ashamed I hadn’t.
He was best known for co-writing a song that became the theme of the French Resistance in WWII, but he also wrote a series of novels set in medieval France in the lead-up to the Hundred Days War. Turns out one of them, with the lovely title She-Wolf of France, is available as a Nook Book- for FREE. Unfortunately it’s in the middle of the series and the rest of them aren’t available on Nook at all, but that’s the caprice of the e-publishing world, it seems. Feast or famine.
I’ll be reading this as soon as I get over my Cecelia Holland glut.
