    The witty double act between 'Ed' and 'Will' sets aside any reservations you might have about the authorship controversy to settle back into an inside-baseball view at the Elizabethan creative process. I'd love to see a full-length face-off between these two, with all the what-ifs of the canon that are avoided by someone making donkey ears over a pint at the pub. My second in O'Grady's historical imaginings, for which she has a gift. Great stuff.
