  1. Ackroyd's friend Shakespeare
    Ruby, 15 augusti 2016

    As always Peter Ackroyd invites the reader into a world in which he seems very comfortable and knowledgeable. Even for those of use who know quite a lot of what there is to know about Shakespeare the man, this is a most pleasant and informative read.
    Ruby Jand, author of 'Shakespeare Calling, the book'

"This is a commendably thorough, engagingly self-effacing new look at a writer whom literary history has never quite managed to pin down, nor ever will. It is the book Peter Ackroyd was born to write" -- Anthony Holden Daily Mail "Shakespeare: The Biography is everything one would expect from a biographer at the top of his game... his recreation of London life is masterful. He knows the plays and understands better than academic biographers how Shakespeare went about researching and writing... His biography ranks with the best of them" Financial Times "His biography is conventional, even cautious; grounded in common sense and wide reading, and written with the sensibility of a working novelist" -- Nicholas Shakespeare Saturday Telegraph "A big, expansive, densely imagined book" -- Sam Leith Spectator "You will not find a better book on Shakespeare... Ackroyd has genuinely set a new standard for accounts of Shakespeare's life - Colin MacCabe, Independent"
