John Steinbeck's book about King Arthur

John Steinbeck wrote a book about King Arthur in 1959 but it was published in 1978. He came to live in Bruton especially to research the story of King Arthur and his knights as they have links to Glastonbury. In fact the Abbey is believed to be by many where the king was buried.
