New Boy by Tracy Chevalier

Mission: Write a novel set in a school in, let’s see, Washington in the 1970s.  Bring in love and, of course, hate.  We also need jealousy, betrayal, deceit, you know … the usual.  Did I say it must remain faithful to Othello?  BTW, it must be completely plausible.   Mission accomplished with panache.

Chevalier, Tracy (2017). New Boy. London, Hogarth.

New Boy is part of the Hogarth Shakespeare Series, where contemporary authors are asked to write a ‘cover version’ of one of Shakespeare’s plays.
