For the first time in 400 years, an author has dared to take on the voice of the world's most famous playwright.
Christopher Rush's extraordinary novel takes as its dramatic theme the deathbed meeting between William Shakespeare and his lawyer, as they set out his final will and testament. As he answers his lawyer's questions, the playwright begins to recall his life, and over 448 pages of tumultuous, passionate and glorious writing the true life of the man emerges.
This is Shakespeare as we have never been able to know him: angry, emotional, honest, reflective, joyous, despairing - we will never think of him in the same way again.

"A most remarkable work. He has made the Bard live!"
(John Bayley)
