My co-author on Macbeth: A Novel was asked by the Huffington Post to answer the question: Should Shakespeare be modernised. Here you can find his answers, literate and compelling as I’d expect.
Some interesting comments too. If you want to know what people who’ve listened to Alan Cumming’s original audiobook narration think take a look here (where we currently have an astonishing 594 ratings). The book of the audiobook is out too, available on Amazon around the world and on Kindle.
