The Book of Air and Shadows
"Author Michael Gruber and his publisher have to be thrilled by the comparisons being drawn between 'The Book of Air and Shadows' and 'The Da Vinci Code,' but . . the real treasure for the readers is the players themselves... Shakespeare might have called them 'poor players who strut and fret their hour upon the stage,' but as they leave the stage at the end of this exhilarating run, you hope you hear from them -- and Gruber -- again soon. New York Daily News. 'Bookshelves across the country are cracking under the weight of thrillers! But few will surpass The Book of Air and Shadows when it comes to energetic writing, compellingly flawed characters, literary scholarship, mathematical conundrums and that oh-so-necessary dose of comic relief! (We never had this much fun reading The Da Vinci Code.) Gruber!has raised the stakes in the thriller genre.' USA Today "If all the world's a play, and we are merely players, where do we get our scripts? That's the underlying question in Michael Gruber's smart new thriller, 'The Book of Air and Shadows.' ... If 'The Book of Air and Shadows,' a contemporary Elizabethan reference to the missing play, sounds overly refined, think again. Gruber's themes may be lofty, but his people -- notably his narrators -- are fully fleshed and often funny, with arch senses of humour and irony... Only rarely does pop culture, from any century, fail these players. When it does, even that is telling... Because ultimately even the wily misfits of 'The Book of Air and Shadows' realize we are all simply unaccommodated man, the thing itself, looking for the right words to make sense out of our worlds." Boston Globe. "In this ingenious literary thriller from Gruber, the lives of two men are changed forever by William Shakespeare and the letters of Richard Bracegirdle, a 16th-century English spy and soldier... They mysterious murder of a Shakespearean scholar, shootouts in the streets of Queens and an unlikely romance all combine to make for a gripping, satisfying read." Publishers Weekly (*starred review*) "A wonderful story with absolutely superb casting." Kirkus Reviews (*starred review*). "Gruber deftly raises the thriller stakes and accelerates the plot while still creating convincing personal journeys... All that and a tantalizing imagining of Shakespeare's personality, too." Booklist (*starred review*). "Not since A.S. Byatt's Possession (1990) has an author so successfully combined literary puzzle, tempestuous duplicity, human adventure and good old-fashioned story-telling. Gruber's highly recommended novel about the search for that which would be 'the greatest single event in Shakespeare studies' -- a quest full of chases, murders, mysteries and eccentric characters -- is engaging, fast-moving and hilarious. Don't miss it!" BookPage
