The dialogue in this book was brilliant. I loved how it read like a play without actually being a play. If that makes sense.

I didn't think of comparing it to a play, but I have read books before that have given me that feeling that they're really just composed of scenes like a play.
"Sorry kids": I think you nailed it. This *is* a play, disguised as a novel. And it really should be read in tandem with the play she did write about the same topic ("Dickon", written under the name Gordon Daviot, where she takes her audience to Richard's time and tells same events treated in Shakespeare's "Richard III", but as she sees them ... with a diametrically opposed portrait of Richard, of course.)

I guess I'll have to keep an eye out for a copy.

Ooh, thanks! I took a quick look and it seemed to be out of print.
Yes, I think except for "Richard of Bordeaux" all of her plays are OOP, so hooray for Faded Page ...
Adding it to the list.
