Modern or feminist takes on Grail Legend?
I'm at the Java House, and a friend who's preparing the syllabus for an undergrad class on The Grail Legend is asking me for any suggestions on a modern or feminist take on it. She's got the old stuff covered and is ordering Malamud's The Natural (who knew?), but needs one more title. She's considering The Once and Future King and The Mists of Avalon, but they're pretty long. She's even flirting with The Da Vinci Code, but is hesitating for obvious quality reasons. Any quick ideas? Are there comic books, graphic novels, something from the past 50 years or so? Any thoughts appreciated.
