Shakespeare Wrote for Money

Shakespeare Wrote for Money - Nick Hornby The third in a series of books aggregating Nick Hornby's "What I bought this month/What I read this month" columns for The Believer magazine, this showcases Hornby's typically witty, insightful and engrossing critical writing. I have not read most of the titles he reviews (which consist of a mix of fiction and nonfiction, classics and contemporary), though the danger here is clear: Your to-read list will grow. It's too late for me, but you should save yourselves while you still can. Or just read Hornby's critical columns, which are by turns funny, warm, personal and incisive.
