Nothing Like the Sun Reviews

"Implicitly, Burgess is making the case that Shakespeare's talent had its origin in his sexual drives and that his topless towers of words were founded on his immense desire and will. Fascinated but resistant, I reread the sonnets and found that the novel illuminated them so much as to justify his case. This is to me a measure of Burgess's talents--that he can remake reality not only in his own writing but also in a new perception of the writings of his subject." -- New York Times Book Review
"Shakespeare [is shown] in his own stirring times. . . . A brilliant book. . . . Taut and forceful." -- Aileen Pippett - Times Literary Supplement [London]
"Nothing Like the Sun is a wildly inventive, verbally dazzling attempt to enter the secret chambers of Shakespeare's inner life. Cunning, alert, and deliciously irresponsible, Burgess brilliantly invents a private history of sexual desire and betrayal lurking behind the blank face that looks out from the First Folio." -- Stephen Greenblatt
