A Novel

by Grace Tiffany ’85M.A., ’89Ph.D. (Berkley Publishing Group)


A view of what Shakespeare’s life could have been, including a fictionalized take on possible sources of inspiration for his memorable works. The friendship of Ben Johnson and enmity of Christopher Marlowe to the young playwright are woven through the narrative, as is a family tragedy.

Tiffany is also the author of My Father Had a Daughter, which showcases the London and the theater of Shakespeare’s time.
