Set in the near future, this dark coming-of-age fable tells the story of David Faulkner, whose dysfunctional family fuels his ambition to escape his rough blue-collar neighbourhood on Chicago's south side. His angelic good looks coupled with his ethereal talent make him the Leonardo DiCaprio of his generation. In this era in which everything is magnified, where leading movie stars once made USD20 million per picture, David -- now Darian Fable -- commands five times that amount. His decision to abandon Hollywood, a fabulous career, untold riches, and retreat to a bucolic estate in Connecticut sets in motion a chain of events that threatens both the lives and careers of some of the most important powers in the entertainment industry -- including his own.

Newspapers & Magazines
"Strap in... 'The Devil of Shakespeare' is an UNBELIEVABLE RIDE!" -- Athena Kottak, celebrity guest commentator VH-1's 'Behind the Music' and 'E! True Hollywood Stories'. "McCarthy should've wound up burned out on drugs and alcohol -- this is someone who's played shows with Axl Rose, after all. But against all odds, instead he's turned into a promising new author." -- Pop Culture Press. "A fascinating and, at times, brutal tale of the dark sides of suburbia and top-tier Hollywood Celebrity, 'The Devil of Shakespeare' establishes McCarthy as a first-rate storyteller his first time out." -- Northwest Indiana Times. "The truth is stranger than fiction and newcomer Billy McCarthy shows how strange the life of a celebrity can be." -- Island Waves, Texas A&M University.
