Read full description of the books Un cadavere a Deptford:

Christopher Marlowe venne assassinato il 30 maggio 1593, in una locanda di Deptford. Ateo, bestemmiatore, omosessuale, ubriacone e spia, amante delle risse da taverna, l'autore di capolavori come Edoardo II e Doctor Faustus, L'ebreo di Malta e Tamerlano, sembrava destinato a una morte violenta, che resta però avvolta nelle nebbie della storia. Per svelare il mistero, Anthony Burgess ha dato voce a un anonimo attore, compagno di varie avventure teatrali, erotiche e politiche dello scrittore elisabettiano. Questo testimone indiscreto ci racconta la folgorante parabola di un eroe seducente e scomodo, geniale e maledetto: scapestrato studente a Oxford, spia a Reims, coinvolto nella lotta senza esclusione di colpi tra protestanti e cattolici, protagonista di amori, sbronze e scazzottate in una Londra febbrile e sorprendente, senza dimenticare il confronto con il coetaneo Shakespeare...
