I thought I was buying a work of historical fiction that would humanize Shakespeare and have him as the main character in the story. What I got was an old guy's internal monolog concerning the problems of having a penis and daydreaming about improbable lesbian sex. I wonder why that wasn't what I expected?
Some of the stories might have been cute/ funny if they were told in the manner of a friend relaying an embarrassing moment, but the "story" doesn't go like that.
Actor was very good, will look for other works narrated by Mr Malcolm
I came to this just after Will In The World an excellent biography and well known and then this novel is a perfect "continuation" if you will. It is hilarious at times and bawdy and plays with the WS mythology and history and is obviously as well researched and knowledgable concerning WS as a straight bio. If you can and you're a big WS fan/buff I'd say do the 2 together as I did.
