His nonfiction includes the critically acclaimed authorized biography of Bruce Chatwin. Shakespeare is married with two sons and lives in Oxford.

Reviews

"His mastery shines through his characters..."--Time Out Chicago
"Shakespeare, a master craftsman, pulls the narrative string and his beguiling story is complete, as intricate and miraculous as a ship in a bottle."--Los Angeles Times Book Review
"Gripping...subtle but arresting."--The Times (London)
"Masterful...The delicate account of [two lovers'] coming together and drifting apart...A work of rare beauty. "--Financial Times
"I read it with complete absorption, wholly immersed in its world. It has a palpability and veracity which is quite mesmerising. A tremendous piece of work."--William Boyd, award-winning author of The Blue Afternoon and Restless
"...quiet and moving...trouble, as ever, is in the offing, and when it arrives, Shakespeare allows it to run its natural course without dipping into melodrama. Expertly crafted, the novel illuminates love's craggy depths."--Publishers Weekly
