"The Last English King" by Julian Rathbone. Awful awful pretentious self-centred slightly kinky twaddle. I'd been thinking about getting into some more historical novels, and the Harold period really interests me. Lone traveller meets up with rag-tag bunch of cod philosophers, cue Rathbone trying really hard to be clever by having a character that puts together Greek words and comes up with "psychotic" ("hey-if I put the Greek word for such-and-such with this word for so-and-so, I can perfectly describe this man's condition!"), that kind of thing. Smug is a good word too, and perfectly describes this book!
