In Sex with Shakespeare, Jillian Keenan tells the story of how the Bard's plays helped her understand human relationships and her own sexuality and find a happy ending of her own. On the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, her passionate, erudite memoir offers a fresh, unusual take on this cultural icon and his work. Keenan uses fourteen of his plays as a springboard to explore the many facets of love and sex. Moving through the canon, it becomes abundantly clear that literature is a conversation, and in Sex with Shakespeare, words are love. Keenan charts her life and her romances through the plays, as she wanders the world in search of herself, demonstrating Shakespeare's universality.
