'Grinne' is a novel by Keith Roberts published in 1987.

Plot summary

'Grinne' is a novel in which Alastair Bevan sees his one-time lover Grinne achieve fame, found a cult, and then die to achieve mythic immortality.


Dave Langford reviewed 'Grinne' for 'White Dwarf' #90, and stated that "The final, haunting images effectively combined fairy mounds and World War III, but didn't overcome my frustration: Grinne's barely-glimpsed story fails to conquer the dead weight of Bevan's autobiographical longueurs."
