Were you subdued by Shakespeare? Did To be or not to be make you want to be somewhere else? If so, this book is for you. Irreverent, rude and darkly funny, Fair is Foul exposes the alternative history of Macbeth, as witnessed by the Thane of Rosse, a key insider at the court of the Scottish King and a man who takes no prisoners when it comes to voicing an opinion! Think of the Alan Clark Diaries written by Black Adder! If you love celebrity-watching, politics or fashion you will enjoy this wicked satire. Power, sex and glamour combine to reveal the true story of what really happened on that fair and foul day. If you thought Shakespearean comedy was just a bunch of men in tights, think again
