Subject: New Novel about Shakespeare
Stephanie Cowell, whose two earlier historical novels (_Nicholas Cooke_
and _The Physician of London_) focused on the Elizabethan and Jacobean
eras has now published her third novel, _The Players: A Novel of the
Young Shakespeare_. I enjoyed the first two immensely, and have just
called my local independent bookstore (the fabulous Hungry Mind; don't
miss it if you're ever in St. Paul) and had them hold a copy of the new
one for me. Another something for the spin-off list and for others like
me who enjoy re-creations of this period. Happy reading!
