Keith Scales, a gifted actor who has performed Shakespeare, Yeats, Joyce and many others, here projects a convincing portrayal of Percival ("A Fool in the Forest") on his quest for the Holy Grail. Percival's voice, light and young with a slight Welsh lilt, is easy to distinguish from those of the Fisher King, the Loathly Lady and the other haunting characters he meets along the way. The author has helpfully listed the sources for his telling of A Fool in the Forest: one French, one Welsh and one Middle German. Together they offer a fresh interpretation of a familiar tale, which departs significantly from Malory's account. In this mesmerizing audio performance, Scales holds listeners spellbound to the end.
