"Best known for his role in Shakespeare's King Henry IV (parts one and two), octogenarian knight errant and bombastic bon vivant Sir John Fastolf -- a.k.a. "Falstaff" -- sets the record straight as he chronicles his relationship with rambunctious Prince Hal while celebrating seventy-odd years of excess and debauchery. This "unabashedly bawdy and outrageously raunchy" (Publishers Weekly) novel, originally published in 1976, will delight readers who enjoy the earthier side of Shakespeare."
