Why read it?

1 author picked The Miller's Tale as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Chaucer didn’t invent erotica, but he must be the all-time bestselling writer of medieval smut. He wrote The Miller’s Tale to entertain fellow travellers on a pilgrimage. I bet they lapped it up. This bawdy celebration of lust and trickery is as rude — and hilarious —  as it was 400 years ago.

From Alan's list on off-the-wall romance.
