The Confession of Piers Gaveston

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
The history books tell us that Piers Gaveston was many things: arrogant, ambitious, avaricious, flamboyant, extravagant, reckless, brave, witty, vain, and peacock proud, the son of a condemned witch who used his wicked wiles and forbidden sex to entice and enslave King Edward II. Now the object of that scandalous and legendary obsession tells his side of the story.

Review by: Christopher Moss (formerly Nan Hawthorne) on Nov. 09, 2009 :
This is a wonderful story of an oft-villefied yet rarely examined life, the life of the lover of King Edward II of England. Told with an awareness of just how unreliable a first person memoir can be, Purdy handles this coplex love story with sensitivity and a real skill at character development and storytelling.
