trodden and, of course, forged a trail of their own across Western art and culture. From medieval myth to modern blockbuster, Dave Thompson's Robin Hood FAQ offers the complete story of Robin Hood, tracing the tale across each of the many media in which it has been told, from legends, ballads, books, comics, and magazines to songs, movies, TV series, and so on. Thompson digs deep into both fact and fiction to separate the modern myth from its earliest counterpart and trace the patterns that the confluence followed. And who better to make sense of the vast and varied life of Nottingham's favorite son than Dave Thompson, an English ex-pat with a bibliography a mile long, a wit so droll it defies critical apprehension, and a marked predilection for Lincoln green? Plenty of ink has already been spilled on the Prince of Thieves, but extant volumes tend to be literary, out of print, or, in scholastic instances, prohibitively expensive (aye, the irony). Written in Applause Theatre and Cinema Books' acclaimed FAQ format, Robin Hood FAQ bursts at the seams with 400 pages of facts, fiction, history, and trivia. Photo-filled and reader-friendly, Thompson's latest tome is at once fun, informative, and, at just $19.99, priced for the 99%.
