"Yes, Virginia, there is such a thing as a well educated, intellectually curious book editor. His name is Herman Gollob, and he has written a remarkable, witty, and wise book about his love of Shakespeare, at once a kind of a memoir and the record of one man's search for meaning in the plays of Shakespeare. It's almost as much fun as lunch with Herman, and that's saying a good deal, and immensely perceptive and challenging for anybody who shares Herman's love for the plays. I had a great time reading it."
