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.
Gerald E. Downs
