Grace Tiffany's second novel offers new view of "Will"

In 'Will: A Novel,' Grace Tiffany combines fact and fiction to provide a compelling account of what William Shakespeare's life could have been, and she does it with the same style and attention to detail that won praise for her first novel, about Shakespeare's younger daughter.

A professor of English at Western Michigan University, Tiffany's first novel, 'My Father Had a Daughter,' is about Judith Shakespeare and was released in May 2003. The two fictionalized accounts have more in common than just the family name. One actually spawned the other, but not in the order they were published."
