Book recommendation from the Pacific Beach/Taylor Branch Library

TITLE: “The Canterbury Tales”

AUTHOR: Geoffrey Chaucer (retold by Peter Ackroyd)

SYNOPSIS:  “The Canterbury Tales” has been a bedrock of English literature for more than 600 years, and the book reminds us that tourism, swapping anecdotes and even dirty jokes are nothing new. The tales range from adventurous to humorous, instructive to romantic. Ackroyd’s retelling uses modern English, while retaining Chaucer’s tone.
