Set in the 17th century, this critically acclaimed novel focuses on Robert Merivel, whose courtly duties include stints as veterinarian to the Royal Dogs, unofficial Fool, and husband to the king's mistress. ``A thoroughly satisfying read, the complex plot is augmented by acutely observed historical detail, nuanced character development, humor and poignancy,'' said PW.
