"Shakespeare Shapiro's life has been one catastrophe after another, all stemming from the fact that his parents saddled him with that ridiculous name. To add insult to injury, his younger brother, Ghandi, is more socially adept than he is. Shakespeare's school, Hemingway High, requires seniors to write a memoir. So Jake Wizner's SPANKING SHAKESPEARE alternates between its protagonist's past and the events of his senior year. In a print book, there are techniques to let readers know if they're reading about the past or the present. But Mike Chamberlain's delivery does not vary, so the listener isn't always able to differentiate between Shakespeare's memoir and his current life. Be prepared for plenty of sexual fantasies, "F-bombs," and other bleep-able language. After all, Shakespeare is a 17-year-old boy with a VERY healthy imagination. N.E.M.
