6 Reviews
A novel that is part literary mystery, part historical detective story, built around an obsessive search for the true author of Shakespeare's works. Stanley Quandary is a professor of English and a very ordinary man. But then he starts to have the strangest and most realistic dreams, dreams that seem to solve one of the greatest mysteries of all time, to expose a conspiracy of silence that is over 400 years old. They even suggest a way to win back his estranged wife. Of course, he might be going insane... . James Boyle is a Professor of Law at Duke University, and a columnist for the Financial Times online. His articles have also been published in The New York Times, Newsweek, the Times Literary Supplement, Daedalus, the Washington Times, the International Herald-Tribune and the Guardian. This is his first novel.
