Brush Up Your Shakespeare! (cover)
National bestseller
“It is a phenomenal book, much needed, compiled with love, fun, and deep perception.” — Brian Blessed
“The bard is revealed in all his 20th-century pervasiveness. The book is as jolly an encapsulation of his impact on England as you could be ‘at one fell swoop.’” Dennis Johnson
