Set in 1483, Rules for a Knight tells the story of Sir Thomas Lemuel Hawke. Fearing he might die as he heads into battle, he writes a letter to his children imparting words of wisdom on leading a chivalrous life. He pens twenty virtues that provide a rulebook for living a noble life.
Publishing director Jocasta Hamilton said: “Executed with wit and elegance, Rules for a Knight is a parable for all ages which has the potential to become a classic. With the appeal of an Arthurian legend and the economy of Aesop, it draws on Eastern and Western philosophy and literature. I think we all need to be reminded, as well as taught, how to live.”
Random House will publish Rules for a Knight in November. Order the book here.
