Review of The Gap of Time by Jeanette Winterson
The Gap of Time takes this story and brings it into a more modern world, taking place in American City called New Bohemia (New Orleans). Like in the play, a man named Leo ends up separated from his young daughter because of a blind jealousy. From the very first page until the end, it's the intense story of a father's mistake and a redemption that shouldn't be possible.
While The Gap of Time doesn't perfectly capture the essence of Shakespeare's play, it works as a great ode to a masterpiece. It's a compelling story and is sure to keep readers going until its climactic end.
