Giveaway: My Name Is Will by Jess Winfield



Full Description (taken from here):
"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



A Tale of two Shakespeares...



Struggling UC Santa Cruz grad student Willie Shakespeare Greenberg is trying to
write his thesis about the Bard. Kind of...



Cut off by his father for laziness, and desperate for dough, Willie agrees to
deliver a single giant, psychedelic mushroom to a mysterious collector, making
himself an unwitting target in Ronald Reagan's War on Drugs.



Meanwhile, would-be playwright (and oppressed Catholic) William Shakespeare is
eighteen years old and stuck teaching Latin in the boondocks of Stratford-upon-Avon. The future Bard's life is turned
upside down when a stranger entrusts him with a sacred relic from Rome... This, at a time
when adherents of the "Old Faith" are being hanged, drawn, and
quartered as traitors.



Seemingly separated in time and place, the lives of Willie and William begin to
intersect in curious ways, from harrowing encounters with the law (and a few
ex-girlfriends) to dubious experiments with mind-altering substances. Their
misadventures could be dismissed as youthful folly. But wise or foolish, the
bold choices they make will shape not only the 'Shakespeare' each is destined
to come... but the very course of history itself.
