'Enjoyable, lively ? such a pleasure to read ? renders the drama of Shakespeare?s contemporaries more than fringe entertainment? Independent

Shakespeare is one of the greatest of all English figures, considered a genius for all time. Yet as this enthralling book shows, he was at heart a man of the theatre, one among a community of artists in the teeming world of Renaissance London ? from the enigmatic spy Christopher Marlowe to the self-aggrandizing Ben Jonson, from the actor Richard Burbage to the brilliant Thomas Middleton. By bringing Shakespeare?s contemporaries to life, Shakespeare & Co throws fresh new light on the man himself.

?Warm, cheerful, generous ? Wells sketches a whole gallery of Shakespeare?s fellow playwrights ? He brings each vividly to life, making you feel that you?ve met them personally in some Blackfriars tavern? Simon Callow

?It was a time and place teeming with excitement, anecdote and incident, and Wells, in this richly enjoyable work, brings it to life with a novelist?s sense of the telling detail? Dominic Dromgoole

?Enthralling? Observer

?This is one of the most sane and exciting books on Shakespeare I have read for a long time? Scotland on Sunday
