Why we love this
Titus Groan, Gormenghast and Titus Alone, by Mervyn Peake. New York and London: The Overlook Press and Methuen, 1982. First printings of a later edition, first thus in the US. One of the great epics to have come out the '40s and '50s, this trilogy was the masterpiece of Mervyn Peake. A highly accomplished illustrator, Peake had written nonsense verse, but turned his talents to this epic saga, in response to the horrors of World War Two. Highly recommended.
