Bill Bryson has written a short, interesting bio about Shakespeare based solely upon factual info.

I LOVE Bill Bryson!  What is the title of the Bill Bryson-Shakespeare book?

Linda, I really enjoyed that book, and so did my wife. Good review, there. Bryson put together a great read out of very little information, and I thought it was well-balanced and entertaining. Grrr, I had it on my WL, took it off when my local library received it, and greatly regretted taking it off my WL once I'd read it. Now I'm 37 of 45 - that'll teach me!
