From sounding the hue and cry to alert a village to danger to malting grain for homemade ale, from the gruesome sport of bear-baiting cuckolding and cross-dressing--the madcap habits and revealing intimacies of life in the time of Shakespeare are ... rendered for the insatiably curious"--Amazon.com.
