This blog started out as Michael Doherty's Personal Library, and it was reviews of books that normally don't get reviewed: basically porn and those insane Scientology books. It was all just a bit of fun, you understand. But both porn and cult propaganda get dull rather quickly. And then I embarked on a three-year Shakespeare study. And Shakespeare has basically taken over, which is a good thing.

Shakespeare Reference in Runaways
The Bantom Book edition of Elizabeth Swados' Runaways contains one mention of Shakespeare. It's not in the play itself, but on the page listing the original cast (which, by the way, included Diane Lane): "RUNAWAYS was first performed at The New York Shakespeare Festival Public Theater on March 9, 1978" (p. 51). This book also includes an introduction by Joseph Papp. This book was published in 1979.
