Shakespeare - The Biography: Vol I by Peter Ackroyd
Book DescriptionVOL. 1: ASPIRING SPIRIT. From Stratford to London. (Birth, 1564 - c. 1590) Peter Ackroyd's insightful new biography positions Shakespeare in the close context of his world. In this way, Ackroyd not only richly conjures up the texture of Shakespeare's life, but also imparts an amazing amount of vivid, interesting material about place, period and background. Walk with Ackroyd through sixteenth century London and Stratford as he uncovers the intimate circumstances of Shakespeare's life. Discover the theatrical world in which Shakespeare had his being - not just Shakespeare the actor but the other actors, playwrights, and managers that surrounded him. And journey to Stratford to meet Shakespeare the family man, whose private life had such an impact on his work that the strongest bond in his plays is always between father and daughter.

Queer City, Hardback (May 2017)View all books by Peter Ackroyd
Looks at the metropolis of London in a whole new way - through the history and experiences of its gay population. In Roman Londinium the penis was worshipped and homosexuality was considered admirable. The city was dotted with fornices (brothels) and thermiae (hot baths). This book takes us right into this hidden city.
