Praise for Marina Fiorato: Fiorato creates her own masterpiece
Wonderful . . . hard to put down. A truly imaginative piece, both touching and delightful. The women are magnificent. I love that Shakespeare had a life outside Stratford and I will never see Much Ado again without it being enriched by knowing how Beatrice and Benedick met.
