Grosseteste in Fiction

The recently published novel A Field Guide to Reality by Joanna Kavenna (riverrun, 2016) has been widely praised for its ingenuity. Among its dramatis personae is Robert Grosseteste ‘futurologist, wizard, mind-bender’ and the first chancellor of Oxford university who ‘wonders at times if he is mad’ before finding that he is in Cairo.
