Summary
  • Language and violence
  • Parry is a homeless history professor who lives in a fantasy world full of castles, Red Knights and damsels in distress. Jack is New York's #1 shock deejay, whose off-hand arrogance triggers a tragedy which ruins his career. Penniless and without prospects, Jack finds himself plucked from disaster by the most improbable of saviors-Parry. And so the amazing story of the Fisher King unfolds a modern quest for redemption and the Holy Grail, filled with humor, heartbreak and ravishing romance
