"The Friendly Shakespeare"

Friendly ShakespeareThe Friendly Shakespeare by Norrie Epstein is an often overlooked gem that introduces readers to the works of William Shakespeare.  Epstein has a light and funny voice and clearly has a passion for the material. This book is essential for teachers, students and anyone looking for cocktail party tidbits. (Freebie: the translated Japanese title of Romeo and Juliet is Lust and Dreams of the Transitory World.)
