Quotes & Awards

  • “From comedy to tragedy to sonnet, from texts to storms to prom, this collection is a knockout.”

    BuzzFeed

  • “A must-read for theater kids…as well as Shakespeare skeptics who might be more willing to warm up to William if his story of star crossed lovers involved an incredibly high stakes text chain.”

    Booklist

  • “This sumptuous anthology reframes Shakespeare’s work, linking themes to contemporary concerns while bringing a critical eye to the originals’ cultural assumptions.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Each story is voiced by one or several narrators who match the gender expression of the main protagonist, giving the audiobook a robust collection of distinct performances. Every tragedy, romance, and comedy is narrated with the ideal amount of enthusiasm, high energy, or relaxed pacing and allows listeners to savor each shortened interpretation. A delightful listen.”
