Summary
Reworking of Chaucer's epic 14th century tale, largely set in wartime Kent, centres on an American army sergeant, a British soldier, and a landgirl who, before making a modern-day pilgrimage to Canterbury, solve the bizarre mystery of a man who pours glue over the hair of village girls at night
