Author: Tracy Chevalier
"Bring Back Desdemona!…"
I have tried several times to read this book, which I was fortunate enough to win from mumsnet. I simply cannot get into it! It takes the characters and themes of Othello and transplants them to an American school. I kept trying to work out who each character represented, rather than just enjoying it! I felt like I was back at High School in the 70s (where I did Othello for Higher English). A book which tries too hard to be clever. A great pity as I loved Girl With A Pearl Earring.
