About the Author

Krista Halverson is director of the newly founded Shakespeare and Company publishing house. She was previously managing editor of Zoetrope: All-Story, a fiction and art magazine published by Francis Coppola and based in San Francisco. Jeanette Winterson is an award-winning writer, most famous for her semi-autobiographical novel, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit. She is also a broadcaster and a professor of creative writing.


Even if you have never entered Shakespeare and Company, this book evokes redolent mustiness, the creaking and crinking of readers shifting in their chairs, the sound of iconic authors turning pages as they read to a rapt audience. It is the familiarity of imagination transporting you to times and places you may or may not have been, and in doing so a sense of this place's personality becomes undeniably present, so much so that you might feel you were there too when Italo Calvino and Pablo Neruda drank wine from empty tuna tins.--Buzz Poole "Lithub "
