Romeo and Juliet, Paperback

Romeo and Juliet Paperback

Edited by Richard Appignanesi

Illustrated by Sonia Leong

Part of the Manga Shakespeare series


Shakespeare's famous tragedy unfurls in front of a dramatic manga setting, in which the fair city of Verona becomes a street in the highly fashionable Shibuya district of Tokyo.

The swordfights become duals with katanas; the Capulets and the Montagues, opposing Yakuza families.

Conflict explodes when Romeo - a bleached-blonde, well-dressed rock star - falls in love with Juliet, the pure and innocent Capulet daughter.
