Shakespeare’s Lost Years

William Shakespeare is NOT who you think he is. Yes, the William Shakespeare.

Students around the world have studied his many works and scholars have analyzed and dissected them, but the truth behind his authorship is shady. Several things just don’t add up when it comes to the playwright’s personal life. Do Shakespeare’s “lost years” help make sense of this perplexing, historical mystery?

“The most enjoyable non-fiction book I’ve read in a long time!”

“I personally found the subject matter interesting, especially as an English Literature student, but your tone and voice throughout are really the most engaging parts of the book alongside the key mystery of ‘who is/was Shakespeare?”

“Very interesting. I must admit I was not expecting this book to bring me on such a long and mysterious journey. But I am glad I took up the challenge. It made me put on my detective hat and think about something I thought was a known fact.”

“I was curious about Shakespeare’s lost years but did not know anything about Anne Hathaway’s real name, or Lord Burghley. But everything is logically explained, and it solves the puzzle. I think all students should read it.”

“A relatively short book that packs a big punch. I liked its sense of humor. Very insightful.”
