About the Book

James Keating, David Connelly, Matt Smith, and Riley Shaunessy are four high school friends struggling to sort out adulthood in their thirties. One night at their local pub, Jack Taft, a professor of Shakespeare, interrupts their typically inane conversation. Taft begs the foursome to discuss something more consequential than the outcome of a basketball game. Connelly challenges Taft to an impromptu debate. Before any of them have time to marvel at Connelly’s intellect, Taft leaves a mysterious envelope for Keating, daring these friends to chase one of the greatest mysteries in the history of the English language: who was William Shakespeare? With the help of Taft’s estranged daughter Rosalind, dormant imaginations are brought to life. Chasing Shakespeare’s lost play, Cardenio, the foursome embarks on a transatlantic journey as they pursue love, purpose, and the truth about the man from Stratford.
