William Shakespeare's The Tempest retold as Hag-Seed

Felix is at the top of his game as Artistic Director of the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival. His productions have amazed and confounded. Now he's staging a Tempest like no other: not only will it boost his reputation, it will heal emotional wounds.

Or that was the plan. Instead, after an act of unforeseen treachery, Felix is living in exile in a backwoods hovel, haunted by memories of his beloved lost daughter, Miranda. And also brewing revenge.

After twelve years, revenge finally arrives in the shape of a theatre course at a nearby prison. Here, Felix and his inmate actors will put on his Tempest and snare the traitors who destroyed him. It's magic But will it remake Felix as his enemies fall?

Margaret Atwood's novel take on Shakespeare's play of enchantment, retribution, and second chances leads us on an interactive, illusion-ridden journey filled with new surprises and wonders of its own.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "The fourth book in the Hogarth series of contemporary novels based on Shakespeare's plays is a delightfully complex and inventive modern recreation of The Tempest, in which the character of Prospero is a prominent theater festival director named Felix. Voice actor Thomson adds life to the character of Felix and the plots and fantasies of his fertile imagination. Felix is pushed out of his job by a scheming underling and goes off the grid, teaching literacy and theater to prisoners and grieving a lost daughter. Over time, Felix transforms into the clever and manipulative teacher who organizes a class of convicts to analyze and perform Shakespeare's Tempest as a means of executing his vengeance. Thomson handles the wild but benevolent humor of Shakespeare's Tempest and Atwood's equally well. A Hogarth hardcover. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
