It will be published in the UK on 9th February 2017.     This is a powerful novel about the power of belief, superstition, religion and grief.

Shakespeare re-tellings disappoint

I have been fascinated by the latest books in the Hogarth Shakespeare series where modern day writers tackle a select few of his works in their own way as part of the Shakespeare 400 anniversary. I recently bought two of them having waited a while for them to come into paperback. I really wish i’d not wasted my money! I…
