'An absolute delight ...boozy, bawdy, generous-hearted ...utterly original and relishable' - "Sunday Times". Shakespeare has always been a big part of Dominic Dromgoole's life. This is the story of how he has stumbled, shambled and occasionally glided through the years with Shakespeare as his guide - whether reading Julius Caesar aloud to cows as a boy, listening to Peter O'Toole crack dirty jokes at his parents' kitchen table, acting in car-crash student productions or putting on his own.Along the way he shows us what Shakespeare's rough-and-ready genius can teach us about love, war, sex, death, drunkenness, friendship ...and just about everything. 'Friendly, inclusive, I warmed to it immediately ...A terrific book' - "Evening Standard". 'The book is clearly a triumph ...You laugh out loud and cringe in equal measure' - "Spectator". 'Superb ...thrillingly entertaining ...throbs with vigour, honesty and passion' - "Daily Telegraph". 'A record of a lifelong obsession - articulate, intelligent and passionately set down ...Dromgoole's enthusiasm has a sincerity and warmth that are infectious' - "Observer". 'Irresistibly seductive' - "Independent on Sunday".
