An Choill, a novel by Liam Mac Cóil. A knight awakes in the middle of the woods, like a child, without any memory, and not knowing where he is. Step by step, he explores his surroundings and begins to make his way towards the light.
This is a philosophical novel by one of the country’s finest writers, written in the style of the 15th Century, the beginning of the age of printing and publishing. An Choill tries to get to grips with the case of one of the Knights of the round Table, who didn’t reach the Holy Grail. This is the story of the man who doesn’t know. It might just be the story of everyman.
