What would happen if William Shakespeare had illegitimite child? What would it have been like in his time? The writing of Richard Wright is lovely and slowly tells of tales of Mam and Aerlene through a great story-telling presentation and how William Shakespeare is involved (or not). I felt transported into time to England in the country, as well as, the bustling London and its different districts. Enjoyable.
