Falstaff: being the Acta domini Johannis Fastolfe, or Life and valiant deeds of Sir John Faustoff, or The hundred days war, as told by Sir John Fastolf, K.G., to his secretaries William Worcester, Stephen Scrope, Fr. Brackley, Christopher Hanson, Luke Nanton, John Bussard, and Peter Basset
The most beloved comic figure in English literature decides that history hasn't done him justice -- it's time for him to tell the whole unbuttoned story, his way. Irascible and still lecherous at eighty-one, Falstaff spins out these outrageously bawdy memoirs as an antidote to legend, and in the process manages to recreate his own.
