  • '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

A passionate Shakespearean since practically birth, Dominic Dromgoole is Artistic Director at the Globe Theatre.
