The Kite Runner (2003) by Khaled Hosseini & the Rape of a Friendship

Beowulf (?) by ? [&] Grendel (1971) by John Gardner

”The name Beowulf itself, ‘bee-wolf,’ apparently meaning bear, suggests affinities with a widely known folktale figure of prodigious strength, the Bear’s Son, the distribution of whose appearances, in North America as well as Eurasia, points to a background in that primordial cult of reverence for the bear discussed in Primitive Mythology, and which is still observed among the Ainus of Japan.”
