Subject:      Iago

 

An unforgettable adventure beginning where Shakespeare's Othello leaves off:

 

More than thirty years ago, David Snodin conceived of the idea for Iago, his first novel. As a BBC script editor, he was immersed in the world of Shakespeare’s greatest plays and while working on Othello, he began to reimagine its ending. Shakespeare leaves us with Iago’s vow of silence and Lodovico’s orders for the criminal’s arrest and torture. But Snodin wondered: What if this was not the end? What if Iago keeps his word and never speaks? What if he escapes? And what if the Venetian inquisitor who’s hunting Iago does not simply want a confession but wants to know his motivations?

 

Exuberantly inventive, thrillingly complex, and richly entertaining, Iago will captivate fans already familiar with Shakespeare and appeal to anyone who loves a rich historical novel. Iago marks the emergence of a remarkable new literary voice.
