For the first time in 400 years, an author has dared to take on the voice of the world's most famous playwright. William Shakespeare is on his deathbed, where he receives his lawyer to set out his final will and testament. As he answers his questions the Bard begins to recall his life, and over 448 pages of tumultuous, passionate and glorious writing the true life of an extraordinary man emerges. This is Shakespeare as we have never known him: angry, emotional, honest, reflective, joyous, despairing - the Bard will never be the same.
