New book published!

I’m very excited to announce the publication of my new book, “Hamlet in Haiku: The Bard’s Masterpiece Retold in five-seven five”.

This book “translates” the entire plot of Hamlet into haiku form. It’s an homage to the original, which, I believe, can help bring out the many meanings of this great work. Only $2.99! Make a Shakespearean poet very happy and pick up a copy. Here’s a sample:


First Gravedigger:        Ain’t she killed herself?
.                     .                 .Why the Christian burial?
Second Gravedigger:   Because they said so.

First Gravedigger:        Drowned in self-defense.
.                 .                     .Viz:assaulted by water.
Second Gravedigger:   It’s because she’s rich.

First Gravedigger:        Great folk get away
.                .                      .With everything. Come, my spade.
.                .                      .Adam was thus armed.

Buy a copy! And – if you want to make me REALLY happy – review it on Amazon and include your favorite haiku in the review. Thank you so much!!!
