Publisher's Summary

Willie Shakespeare Greenberg is not living up to his name. It's 1986, and instead of finishing his thesis on the Bard, this grad student is saying "yes" to drugs, bedding coeds, and delivering a giant psychedelic mushroom to a mysterious collector.

Meanwhile (or rather, back in 1582), would-be playwright William Shakespeare is an 18-year-old Latin teacher whose world is turned upside down when a stranger entrusts him with a sacred relic from Rome, drawing him into an underground network of Catholic dissidents.

When the lives of Willie and William begin to eerily intertwine, their wild misadventures will shape not only the "Shakespeare" each is destined to become...but the very course of history itself.

What the Critics Say

"Utterly delicious, original, witty, hilarious and brilliant. Shakespeare in Love on magic mushrooms. The Bard has never been this much fun." (Christopher Buckley, author of Boomsday and Thank You for Smoking)

    What disappointed you about My Name Is Will?

    It was an pathetic excuse to write about sex. The outline had such potential, but in reallity it was like a novel wriiten by a spotty adolescent. The discriptions of explicit sex and drug taking gets very boring, and is very one dimensional. The characters were also flat and not engaging. I couldn't make myself finish it. Self indulgent, and pathetic.

    I wasted my money and my time.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jess Winfield again?

    NO


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different book, by a different author.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from My Name Is Will?

    All of it!
