Description

A dramatic new departure for international best-selling author Bernard Cornwell, Fools and Mortals takes us into the heart of the Elizabethan era, long one of his favourite periods of British history.

Fools and Mortals follows the young Richard Shakespeare, an actor struggling to make his way in a company dominated by his estranged older brother, William. As the growth of theatre blooms, their rivalry - and that of the playhouses, playwrights and actors vying for acclaim and glory - propels a high-stakes story of conflict and betrayal.

Showcasing his renowned storyteller's skill, Bernard Cornwell has created an Elizabethan world incredibly rich in its portrayal: you walk the London streets, stand in the palaces and are onstage in the playhouses as he weaves a remarkable story in which performances, rivalries and ambition combine to form a tangled web of intrigue.

Critiques

"Like Game of Thrones, but real." ( The Observer)
"Blood, divided loyalties and thundering battles." ( The Times)
"Strong narrative, vigorous action and striking characterisation, Cornwell remains king of the territory he has staked out as his own." ( The Sunday Times)

Amazing

A brilliant and exciting story. Enjoyed it very much. It really took me into the world, complications and conflicts of Elizabethan theatre. The relationship between William and Richard Shakespeare was very believable. Highly recommended.

A Solid Performance

This is in true Cornwell fashion--without the swords or guns...A well-structured and well-told story. But then he always tells a good story. You always empathise with his characters and you will here as well. This will not disappoint if you are a Cornwell fan.
