Dear Terence Hawkes:

I'm so glad you enjoyed the book.  And I was pleased to see that this
past Sunday's New York Times Book Review also gave it a good write up.
Their reviewer, David Paterson, concluded:   "Setting her story against
the background of the old and new Globe, cleverly explicating old and
new acting and performance techniques, Susan Cooper entertains her
contemporary readers while giving them a first-rate theatrical
education."    My reaction was more emotional; I reached the last page
and wept for the beauty of it.  (And I am not the weepy sort.)

With all best wishes,
Ellen Steiber
