SIGNED Laertes hardcover
Set in 1920s Europe, this poignant dark academia novel sheds new light on Shakespeare's masterpiece, finally allowing Laertes to tell his side of the story.
Laertes Belleforest lives two lives: a wild, passionate one with his best friends studying Classics in Paris, and a stifling existence in the Danish court where the mercurial prince Hamlet constantly overshadows him.
Now in his last year at university, Laertes must decide the kind of man he will become. But who is he, apart from the huge personalities that surround him and the secret guilt that haunts him?
When tragedy rocks Denmark, Laertes' questions are forced into focus. Like a Greek play, his story hurtles through love and wine, ghosts and revenge, toward inevitable catastrophe.
