Read in January, 2011

This is such an original novel, written with such verve and energy, that I'd recommend readers cancel their commitments for a few days, stock up on tea (or ale) and just enjoy immersing themselves fully in this rich, delicious, multi-layered story. You don't have to know about Marlowe, or hold any 'position' on the Shakespeare authorship question, to enjoy this book; you just need to be the sort of reader who appreciates an exciting tale well told. Then you can marvel at its fluency, and delight in the skill of a wordsmith who knows really her onions as a poet as well as a prose writer.
