For those who are amused, some more tidbits about Shakespeare in Charge:
The authors are Kenneth Adelman and Norman Augustine, who co-authored a
1990 book called _The defense revolution: strategy for the brave new
world by an arms controller and an arms builder_. Their newest book is
published by Hearst/Talk Magazine/Miramax, and is featured in a trailer
on the Shakespeare in Love video. For a while, Talk Magazine was
sponsoring a book tour with a tie-in to MasterCard: if you used your
charge card to buy the book, you could get a free copy of the
Shakespeare in Love soundtrack (of course, if you bought some Max Factor
mascara, you could get a free rental of the video at Blockbuster, and
have yourself a whole evening of fun).

I particularly like the move implicit in the marketing of the book from
the feminized Shakespeare of our Oscar-winning film to the butch,
arms-toting business man of the new book extolled by Colin Powell, Henry
Kissinger and Sam Donaldson. I leave it to you all to make further
connections between arms, business management, Shakespeare, Tina Brown
and Harvey Weinstein . . .
