    I wasn t sure how I d feel about this one when I requested it On the one hand, I love Arthuriana and I have enjoyed several loose interpretations of it, even humorous light hearted ones On the other hand, I m not very good at humour myself, and can be a bit snooty about anything that messes too much with my views on Arthuriana.It turns out, I really enjoyed it, and read it in

    I was excited to read The Table Of Less Valued Knights because compared to the other nominations for the 2015 Baileys Women s Prize, this book is very different It is an adult fairy tale telling what is supposed to be a hilarious continuation to the story of Arthur and the Knights of The Round Table The story follows Sir Humphrey who sits at the Table of Less Valued Knights made up of the knights
