"Refreshingly eccentric ... an engrossing tale" — Kirkus Reviews
White supremacists are "weaponizing" the Middle Ages. One historian aims to stop them.
Embattled Yale history prof Abe Kantorowicz enlists two grad students, Molly Isaacson and Quinton Quick, to confront neo-Nazis on the battlefield of propaganda. Armed only with a mysterious manuscript and their knowledge of history, they set in motion a scheme to disrupt and derange the Alt-Right for years to come.
It’s The DaVinci Code meets Infinite Jest!
The Medievalist is a fictional response to the real-life threat from contemporary neo-Nazis who coopt medieval symbols for their evil agenda. Set in today’s America, the novel is chock full of real history, yet resonates with present-day issues: the dangers of racism and white supremacy, the uses and abuses of the past, and the responsibilities of academia.
