But enough with the moaning. I now present - for your amusement and/or horror - a phone conversation I had with a customer yesterday:
Customer: Do you have the 'Have No Fear' Shakespeare books?
Me: The 'No Fear' Shakespeare series (published by SparkNotes)? Yes, we carry them.
Customer: The ones where they're put into English?
Me: (internal editor was working furiously, here) Actually, it already is in English. But this series does have a modern prose translation alongside the original text.
Customer: Yeah. Um, do you have one for - I think it's Up... Apello?
Me: (internal editor has thrown up hands and gone outside for a cigarette) We should have a copy of the No Fear for Othello. Hold on while I run upstairs to check.
How can you reach your teenage years (and she may well have been older) without knowing Othello? At least, as Don mentioned, the Milton Bradley game?
