What a fun read! An intriguing premise, some tidbits about Shakespeare, informative reading (at least for a shiksa) about bar & bat mitzvah customs. And hen lit on top. Love it! Will definitely read more of her work!

Another fun romp through classic lit in modern times from Marantz Cohen. This time, the title character, Jessie Kaplan, is a grandmother living with her daughter and son-in-law and their children, in suburban New Jersey. However, she believes herself to be the reincarnation of Shakespeare's "Dark Lady". Is she meshuggah, or was she once the Bard's great love? A trip to Venice in search of lost sonnets, a reunion with a lost love, a psychiatrist who writes popular self-help books, and the planning of granddaughter Samantha's bat mitzvah, all feature in this enjoyable story.
