Read it and Weep

Jul 18, 2014

If you ever watched Hamlet and thought "this has too much excitement" then Lisa Klein's book Ophelia is for you.

Ophelia imagines a world where the insane woman in Hamlet is only pretending to be insane and instead of being dead she just pretends to be dead and instead of just being told to get herself to a nunnery, she gets herself there. And stays there. For 1/3 of the book.

It's basically Shakespearean slash fic with modern sensibility and no slashing.

Thanks to Emily for sponsoring this episode! And welcome back Papa Ezra (on a part-time basis at least).
