Review: “Fools And Mortals” by Bernard Cornwell

The King of the historical fiction genre has returned with a stand-alone novel re-telling the first staging of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and I practically ran to the bookstore to buy it. How could I resist? I'm a massive Cornwell fan, he's one of the few authors where I will actively go out and buy the hardback rather than wait for the paperback and this looked like it ticked all my boxes - Cornwell's usual eye for detail with setting and description, theatre and adventure all rolled up together.
