A Tender Thing  

A Tender Thing $19.95 ex GST

Another Romeo and another Juliet in a strikingly different love story...

Ben Power weaves the text of Romeo and Juliet into a provocative new tale of love and sacrifice. Re-imagining Shakespeare's story, A Tender Thing is an elegiac yet ultimately hopeful account of the human capacity for love.

Shakespeare's timeless poetry provides the backdrop for this delicate and moving account of old age, memory and the demands we make of those we love. When a married couple discover that their lifetime together is drawing to a close, they realise they cannot contemplate being apart.

Power's ingenious reorganisation pays off handsomely... what did Shakespeare know? - Guardian
