Shakespeare Reference in The Best Little Boy In The World
Andrew Tobias’ memoir The Best Little Boy In the World (published under the pseudonym John Reid) contains a reference to Hamlet. Reid writes, “You would never catch me electing art instead of science, playing Hamlet instead of tennis” (p. 31). The Best Little Boy In The World was originally published in 1973, then amended in 1976. The copy I read is from 1979, the fourth printing of the Ballantine Books edition.
