M.B. What inspired you to write a story with Prince Harry as your main character?
W.K. I saw a production of Shakespeare’s two Henry IV plays. I was surprised to find how much Shakespeare’s Prince Hal resembles the modern Prince Harry. Isn’t it great when someone from today suddenly illuminates a Renaissance text? Imagine a playwright writing a character four centuries ago that is still vividly familiar to us today.
That’s Laurence Olivier on the movie set of Henry V (1944) — checking his four hundred year old script. A good read? Oh yeah. And speaking of #goodreads William Kuhn’s Prince Harry Boy to Man is free right now, so snap it up!
