Looking for Hamlet investigates our many searches for Hamlet, from their origins in Danish mythology through the complex problems of early printed texts, through the centuries of shifting interpretations of the young prince to our own time when Hamlet is more compelling and perplexing than ever before. Hunt presents Hamlet as a sort of missing person . . .
Richly detailed, full of lively encounters with people and places, Among the Children of the Sun does what no other book about the Bahamas has done: take readers beyond the name tags and smiling faces of those who service the tourist industry, into their real lives, conveying the triumphs and tragedies of ordinary people living in an extraordinary landscape . . .
