Book of the Day, Arthur Philips' The Tragedy of Arthur.

by D - Tuesday, May 03, 2011 at 12:41pm

I'm half way into Arthur Philips' The Tragedy of Arthur and it is well worth the read. It is intelligent and hilarious. The novel includes a convincing forgery of a supposedly long-lost Shakespearian play in its five-act entirety. The Tragedy of Arthur offers a fresh look at storytelling and truth-telling, our desire for originality and discovery, and the act of literary mythmaking.

I first read about The Tragedy of Arthur in the New York Times Sunday Book Review, Stephen Greenblatt gave it a positive review. By the way Arthur Philips is a five time Jeopardy Champion, and the author of the much acclaimed Prague and The Song is You.
