STALKING SHAKESPEARE A Memoir of Madness, Murder, and My Search for the Poet Beneath the Paint

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Matt Godfrey

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Matt Godfrey's voice is friendly but with a ragged edge--a perfect choice to deliver this tequila-, Pop-Tart-, sake-, and Adderall-fueled trip down the rabbit hole of Shakespeare's life and legacy. This is a true saga of the author's unconventional, obsessive, and exhaustive search to discover Shakespeare's "true" portrait and identity. Godfrey masterfully delivers the author's wry asides and humorous tone as he uncovers the many lies, fakes, and conspiracies surrounding Shakespeare and his portraits. Even if you can't follow all the intrigues and complexities of the art world, painting restorations, and Elizabethan court life, Godfrey is like an eccentric friend who will drag you along for the ride. Who knew that the world of Elizabethan portraiture could be so entertaining? L.T. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2023]
