The Tragedy of Arthur by William Shakespeare: The First Modern Edition of His Lost Play, with an Introduction and Notes by Arthur Phillips

The Tragedy of Arthur is an emotional and elaborately constructed “tour de force” from bestselling and critically acclaimed novelist Arthur Phillips, “one of the best writers in America” (The Washington Post)

I very much liked the fictional biography, or is it fictography?

I love that mind-boggling idea of not just inventing a (remarkably well done) lost Shakespearean play, but the whole family history to go along with it. Or, is it all true? To furphy or not to furphy, that is the question…

And so, fooling the readership into not knowing what to believe anymore! Great, base for a long night with friends discussing it in your book club… Or any English teacher seeking inspirational books for their classes.

So much fun to read, talk and think about… Go ahead and buy it, worth every penny…
