The Late Mr. Shakespeare proves how alive he was. A bawdy, entertaining, & eye-opening novel about the greatest writer of the Western world.

Welcomed in Shakespeare's own land as the most original, exciting, and provocative novel about the playwright since Anthony Burgess's classic Nothing Like the Sun, Robert Nye's The Late Mr. Shakespeare is a literary event.
