Description
(Nominated for the 2013 Women's Prize for Fiction and winner of the Desmond Elliott Prize) This remarkable novel in verse gives voice to a man who was brilliant, passionate, and mercurial, and who may have written the greatest dramas of the English language. Did Christopher "Kit" Marlowe die in a tavern brawl in London in 1593, wonders Ros Barber? Or was he spirited away across the English Channel by his benefactor Thomas Walsingham, in an elaborate ruse to avoid a conviction of heresy; and in his lonely exile, did he continue to write plays and poetry, hiding behind the name of a colorless businessman from Stratford, one William Shakespeare?

"A must-read for anyone interested in Marlowe, William Shakespeare or 16th-century English history.... The writing is superb, the plot moves quickly and Marlowe's story is compelling. An award-winning, highly original novel in verse about the life of Christopher Marlowe—even after the world believed him dead."—ShelfAwareness.com

"A bravura performance: a noir thriller in doublet and hose. The life of Kit Marlowe, the baddest boy of English Literature, is great fare for any writer. There's espionage and sex; murder and treachery; and, this being England, a healthy dose of cross-dressing. And Barber serves it, steaming hot."—Simon Worrall
