New This Week: Juliet by Anne Fortier

Emmy Award-winning producer, Anne Fortier (Fire and Ice: The Winter War of Finland and Russia), here takes on one of Shakespeare’s best-loved characters with a rich and resonant result.

In a starred review, Publishers Weekly said that, in Juliet, (Ballantine) Fortier “bobs and weaves between Shakespearean tragedy and popular romance for a high-flying debut .... that reads like a Da Vinci Code for the smart modern woman.”

Does anything more really need to be said? We didn't think so either.

If people stop talking about Jonathan Franzen for five minutes, this one is likely to generate a whole lot of buzz.
