The doomed hero of The Tragedy of Arthur is Arthur Phillips, a young man struggling with a larger-than-life father, a con artist who works wonders of deception but is a very unreliable parent. Arthur is raised in an enchanted world of smoke and mirrors where the only certain fact is his fathers and beloved sisters shared love for the works of William Shakespeare a love so pervasive that Arthur becomes a writer in a misguided bid to win their approval. The doomed hero of The Tragedy of Arthur is Arthur Phillips, a young man struggling with a larger-than-life father, a con artist who works wonders of deception but is a very unreliable parent. Arthur is raised in an enchanted world of smoke and mirrors where the only certain fact is his fathers and beloved sisters shared love for the works of William Shakespeare a love so pervasive that Arthur becomes a writer in a misguided bid to win their approval. Near the end of his life, Arthurs father shares with him a treasure that he has kept for half a century: a previously unknown play by Shakespeare, titled The Tragedy of Arthur. Arthur and his sister also inherit their fathers mission, to see the play published and acknowledged as the Bards last great gift to humanity. Unless, of course, its their fathers last and greatest deception.

The whole thing is deliciously playful, a cunning comment on fiction and fraud and literary reputation and speculation * The Daily Mail *
A wonderful pastiche, steeped in the language and dramatic conventions of the Elizabethan era ... Ingenious * Sunday Times *
A novel that's going to cause a stir ... there are few limits to Mr Phillips' imagination -- Robert McCrum * Guardian *
