Selected by Indie Booksellers for the September 2008 Indie Notables
“This is a highly personal, beautifully written, insightful glimpse into the character that has perhaps had the greatest impact on historical and contemporary literature. Rush captures what one imagines Shakespeare's candid voice might have sounded like -- witty, profound, lyrical, and full of wordplay -- and immerses us in the politics as well as the prose that influenced and inspired the playwright. Throughout, it is the voice of Will himself that resonates.”
-- Kelly Wells, The King's English, Salt Lake City, UT

Rush takes [readers] into Shakespeare's mind; he dares to speak in Shakespeare's words ("The Independent"), in this work that chronicles how the Bard wrote his will.
