Product Details


A misunderstood thespian stops at nothing to obtain a lead role in this modern retelling of Shakespeare’s Richard III. . . .Through a narrative format that shifts between the first and third person, moves forward and backward in time, and incorporates prose, play scripts, and even a musical score, Rory’s numerous misdeeds are revealed. . . Reimagining Richard III as a toxic theater kid rather than a crown-hungry noble is thought provoking. . . . Sensationally tragic.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

This is an ambitious reimagining of Shakespeare’s Richard III that succeeds in large part because of the way Eagar (The Family Fortuna, 2023) handles Rory’s narration. . . astonishing. A troubling, unforgettable read.
—Booklist (starred review)

A teen thespian launches a Machiavellian campaign to land a starring role in this fiendish Richard III homage from Eagar. . . . With myriad metafictional flourishes, the tale unfolds in five acts in third-person-present narration, which Eagar intercuts with scenes written like script excerpts, fourth-wall-breaking monologues from Rory, and even a musical score. An intersectionally diverse cast of nuanced characters adds depth; Rory, in particular, is a sympathetic antihero whose pain, desperation, and loneliness color every deed.
