    'Shakey's Madness' is a well-researched, lively, and well rounded argument around the "real" author of 'The First Folio'. Using academic resources including The Folger Shakespeare Library, the author sets out his hypothesis that the real author of the work currently attributed to William Shakespeare may have experienced bipolar affective disorder, and this information may help us to uncover his identity. It is a fresh take on the authorship question. It even explains the possible involvement of Sir Thomas North.  
    I can't say I've ever particularly doubted that Shakespeare's work was written by William Shakespeare; that is I was familiar with the theory that the canon were written by someone else, it had just never interested me enough to look into it. I was curious about 'Shakey's Madness' as a neutral observer, and I found that the author formed his arguments in a way that was entertaining and interesting. At times it reminded me of a university essay, with references to academics and further sources but I found it easy to follow along with. I feel this would be an interesting read regardless of which side of this particular argument you fall. Yes, there will always be those who will claim that Shakespeare could be self-taught like Lincoln or DaVinci and not need college or schooling, but this is a book that curves. It asks about all the fainting that happens in the Shakespeare canon. Fainting that is not only found in his plays, but his poetry too. 
    This audio book is narrated by the author who shares his own personal stories along with why people have doubted the man from Stratford, and why the Oxfordian argument makes sense. You might also learn something about the alarming rise of bipolar II affective disorder along the way. Listeners will be reminded to take out their trash bins for hell hath no fury of a woman left with too much trash.

    In That Thing You Do With Your Mouth, actress and voiceover artist Samantha Matthews offers—in the form of an extended monologue, prompted and arranged by New York Times bestselling author (and Matthews’s cousin once removed) David Shields—a vivid investigation of her startling sexual history. 
     From her abuse at the hands of a family member to her present-day life in Barcelona, where she briefly moonlighted as a dubber of Italian pornography into English, Matthews reveals herself to be a darkly funny, deeply contemporary woman with a keen awareness of how her body has been routinely hijacked and how she has been “formatted” by her early trauma. Her story is a study of her own uneasy relationships with female desire, her tormentors, and her lovers—with whom she seeks out both the infliction and receipt of harm. This book is an attempt, sometimes self-thwarted, to break down barriers: sexual and emotional for Matthews, and literary for Shields. 
     For Matthews and Shields, the only response to the unspeakable is to speak, to do that thing you do with your mouth, as directly and honestly as possible. Their provocative performance refuses neat resolution or emotional pornography; it will have readers, from literary critics to Jezebel commentators, raving, raging, celebrating, and talking.

    The first full-scale biography of Mary Boleyn, one of the most misunderstood figures of the Tudor age Mary Boleyn was the mistress of two kings, Francois I of France and Henry VIII of England, and sister to Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s second wife. In this astonishing and riveting biography, Alison Weir’s extensive research gives a new and detailed portrayal, in which she recounts that, contrary to popular belief, Mary was entirely undeserving of her posthumous notoriety as a great whore.
