    Welcome to Shakespeare on Toast – Getting a Taste for the Bard

    Hi, and welcome to the Shakespeare on Toast website.

    I’ve set this site up as a base for my new book Shakespeare on Toast – Getting a Taste for the Bard, published by Icon Books in September 2008.

    In times to come, there’ll be details of literary festival talks, reviews, and anything else interesting I can think of.

    There’s also a Facebook group that’s been set up, for those of you that do, and a space there for a discussion forum.

    Meet the AuthorIf you’d like to hear more about the book, and exactly why it’s different from all the other books on Shakespeare, click here for the video I recorded for Meet the Author, or you can click on the Amazon link over to the right under Toast Links, to pre-order the book.

    Thanks for visiting…
