Subject:     Lunch at Tiffany’s

 

John Briggs questioned my authorship attribution:

 

> I think it is unfair to give Tiffany Stern all the blame

> (as Gerald E. Downs does) for “Shakespeare in Parts”.

> The authorship statement is “by Simon Palfrey and Tiffany

> Stern” and I found it to be a remarkably uneven book.

> I didn’t do a stylometric analysis, but it seemed to be easy

> to guess which author wrote which part.

 

“Lunch at Simon’s” didn’t have the same ring. I wondered if anyone would notice. I assumed the book is backed by both authors equally.
