[nice tight copy with no discernible wear; jacket very clean and attractive, with a short closed tear and associated creasing at top of spine]. (line drawings) "A wildly amusing first-person narrative (from tapes) by a phantom William Shakespeare, in which the Bard of Avon's ghost discusses many things -- particularly the charges that he didn't write the plays. He demolishes Marlowe, the Baconian Society, Ben Jonson, and others. He also proves, for some readers, that Queen Elizabeth was the real playwright." Blatty's third (and scarcest) book.
