Shakespeare's Changeling

WINNER FIRST PLACE CHAUCER AWARD FOR HISTORICAL FICTION

Charged in 1616 by the Earls of Pembroke and Montgomery to edit a folio of Shakespeare plays, writer Ben Jonson races against time to uncover the missing manuscripts by seeking out his former nemesis, the bedridden William Shaxper. But far more worrisome is that the Earl of Oxford's daughter, the Countess of Montgomery, wants the folio published as a tribute to her father. Could Lord Oxford's darkest secrets threaten the throne of King James? Witty, intriguing and suspenseful, Syril Levin Kline’s controversial new novel calls into question everything you ever thought you knew about the Bard by exploring the irony of a creative genius forced to hide behind the identity of another. Kline proudly joins Mark Twain, Walt Whitman, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, James Joyce, Charles Dickens and other writers in their skepticism about the Shakespeare authorship. As fascinating as it is entertaining and deftly written, "Shakespeare’s Changeling: A Fault Against the Dead" offers the most reasonable solution to the authorship mystery ever presented.

Welcome to the book that will make you change the way you view Shakespeare.
