Willie Shakespeare Greenberg is not living up to his name. It's 1986, and instead of finishing his thesis on the Bard, this grad student is saying yes to drugs, bedding coeds, and delivering a giant psychedelic mushroom to a mysterious collector.

Meanwhile (or rather, back in 1582), would-be playwright William Shakespeare is an 18-year-old Latin teacher whose world is turned upside down when a stranger entrusts him with a sacred relic from Rome, drawing him into an underground network of Catholic dissidents.

When the lives of Willie and William begin to eerily intertwine, their wild misadventures will shape not only the Shakespeare each is destined to become...but the very course of history itself. Download and start listening now!

    " Eh. Only my inability to not finish a book kept me from putting it down in the middle, mostly because I never got into it. The beginning was promising and quirky, but it just started to drag and very little made me want to keep reading. "

    " An interesting and rather risky novel telling the story of two protagonists, William Shakespeare and William Shakespeare Greenberg a graduate student of UCSC in the 1980's. The subtitle of the book, A Novel of Sex, Drugs and Shakespeare is accurate especially the sex part. I found the chapters relating to William Shakespeare to be very interesting, and I especially like how lines from his plays were interspersed in everyday conversations. I enjoyed the glimpse of his family life even though fictionalized and the current events that most assuredly must of had an impact on a young man. As for Will S. Greenberg, I found him shallow and superficial. Nuff said. "

    " A fun romp through 16th Century England and 20th Century Northern California as Willie Shakespeare Greenberg and his famous namesake experience drugs, sex, and the occasional Renaissance Faire. For both Shakespeare lovers and non-lovers, this is a fun (and funny) read! "

    " Well I actually never finished this book - I very rarely do not finish this one but I tried and tried and was just not very interesting... The cool part was that every other chapter was first about Will - a college student studying Shakespeare and then the next would be actually a scene with Shakespeare himself and his family. The Shakespeare part just wasn't intriguing to me unfortunately. "
