Description - Corbenic by Catherine Fisher

Carl has struggled to cope with his mother's drinking and psychotic episodes since he was six; so when he finally leaves home to live with his uncle he is ruthless about breaking with the past, despite his mother's despair. But getting off the train at the wrong station, Carl finds himself at the mysterious castle of the Fisher King; and the night he spends there plunges him into a wasteland of desolation and adventure as he begins his predetermined quest back to all he has betrayed. In this reworking of the Grail Legend, Catherine Fisher has created a gripping novel that moves between myth and a contemporary journey of self-knowledge until one becomes indistinguishable from the other.
