Subject:        A Hamlet Prequel

Greetings, one and all...

Has anyone read Updike's newest, Gertrude and Claudius?  (Or maybe it
was Claudius and Gertrude...?)  I very nearly purchased it yesterday in
our local McBook store, but thought I'd save my $24.95 and ask the
list.  The cover blurb goes on and on about how it's all based on the
Ur-Hamlet and Norse history, etc.  The first page or two didn't look
promising, but who knows.
