Felix is pushed out of his job as the creative lead of a theater company and ends up on a twelve year sabbatical that gives him just enough time to plan his revenge. His self exile in a rough cabin inhabited by the ghost of his young daughter who died at three and his own thoughts is sometimes stultifying. He takes a job teaching literacy theater in a prison and the road to revenge is paved. I will freely admit the story was new to me after having no problem forgetting the entirety of my college Shakespeare class. This retelling is interesting and made me a want to read the original. I listened to the audio version and thoroughly enjoyed R. H. Thomson's narration of events.
