Episode 492. The Shakespeare Guardian

Published by austin on

imageEverybody loves a detective story, and a detective story involving a genuine Shakespeare artifact is irresistible. Former DC cop and NEA fellow Quintin Peterson is a crime novelist and stage door guard at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC. His novel Guarding Shakespeare imagines a Shakespearean heist set against this legendary backdrop, and features real-life inspirations, flawed heroes, femmes fatale, a balance between life and art, mixing the real with the fictional, brushes with Hollywood, and, most importantly for a literary detective, a sweet ride with Shakespearean vanity plates. (Length 19:38)
