Coming Soon : The Secret Confessions of Shakespeare's Wife

In this book of historical fiction, Anne Hathaway Shakespeare isn't the forgotten wife left behind to raise children as her playwright husband lives a theatrical life. In Ryan's version, Hathaway makes her own mark on the London art scene and writes some of her husband's plays - but without getting the credit.
Such is the description given for Arliss Ryan's "The Secret Confessions of Shakespeare's Wife", which it should be clearly noted is a work of fiction, people. Fiction. Relax and enjoy.

Compare with Shakespeare's Wife, by Germaine Greer if you want something more in the biography genre :).

Yet somehow, one imagines it will be more plausible than the Oxfordian conspiracy.

Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week.
