Subject:      Book Announcement: A Lifetime with Shakespeare

My book, _A Lifetime with Shakespeare: Notes from an American Director of All 38 
Plays_, is OUT, on the shelves, available at McFarland, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, the 
Drama Book Shop, Sages Pages in Madison, in London, and in India.

Book Description: Written by the only American to direct and fight--choreograph all of 
Shakespeare's plays, this text represents an expert and practical guide to the Bard's 
oeuvre. From the Henry VI plays through The Tempest, each play is explored in its full 
theatrical complexity, with particular attention paid to directorial and acting challenges, 
character quirks and development, and the particularities of Shakespearean language. 
Directing successes are recounted, but the failures are not shied away from, making 
this work indispensable for anyone interested in producing plays by Shakespeare. 
Foreword by Harry Keyishian

Paul Barry has spent 60 years as a professional actor and musician on stage and in 
films, and has directed over 300 plays and musicals.
