Happy Birthday, TH

book jacket of 'The Once and Future King'
Today in 1906, in Bombay, India, T.H. White was born. The Once and Future King is enough to warrant celebrating him, but his other novels are fun, and England Have My Bones and The Goshawk are fascinating looks into English country life.

Here's a lovely website devoted to White.

The Once and Future King is one of the few books that brought me to tears. Guy Gavriel Kay had it right about the story of Arthur: "Saddest of all the long stories told," and no one told it better than T. H. White. Thanks!
