The Last True Poets of the Sea

Julia Drake

$17.99 $16.55

"Drake uses her modern story's inspiration, Twelfth Night, to meditate on performance of all kinds--theatrical and societal, the ways in which we pretend to be someone we're not. The result is a highly developed thematic heart that fits perfeftly with the novel's Shakespearian origins. Beautiful writing, a compassionate, resonant representation of mental illness, and a complicated sibling bond make this book sparkle." - Olivia M.
