Description

Jess Winfield, co-founder of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, discusses My Name Is Will: A Novel of Sex, Drugs, and Shakespeare, his whimsical fiction debut. The politically charged, irreverent, and humorous romp follows the parallel lives of two prodigal young Shakespeares: William Shakespeare in 1580s England and would-be Elizabethan scholar Willie Shakespeare Greenberg in 1980s California. According to Publishers Weekly, “Winfield uses his deep understanding of Shakespeare’s work and times to great effect, and his affection for the material shines throughout.”
