Brahms and Simon wrote with wit and imagination, and even more so with a great sense of the silly, the ridiculous, the absurd, the just plain funny. This is a treat for anyone who has ever read anything about Shakespeare's life, and for anyone who has seen the film "Shakespeare in Love" (apparently unconnected), and for anyone who would just like a little more laughter.
To follow their Victorian book, Brahms and Simon went back to Elizabethan times, with No Bed for Bacon (1941). There is plenty of fun in the lighthearted fantasy recently perpetrated by Caryl Brahms and S. J. Simon. Their book is irresponsible, irreverent, impudent, anachronistic, undocumented. The authors warn all scholars that it is also "fundamentally unsound. The authors warn all scholars that it is also "fundamentally unsound".

No Bed for Bacon book. Warning to Scholars: This book is fundamentally unsound. Simon wrote four humorous historical novels together; and this is probably both the silliest and funniest. They have taken a sort of general idea of the Elizabethan period, as though culled from second-rate popular histories and a good knowledge of the literature and stirred it all together as though everything in the period happened in a rush rather than during a reign of over forty years.
First published in 1941, No Bed for Bacon is a comic classic. Caryl Brahms (1901-82) was a ballet correspondent for the Daily Telegraph, a colourful figure in London's theatrical world and became a forceful governor of the National Theatre. Out of print since 1985, but much-discussed in the press following the release of the Oscar-showered film Shakespeare in Love, the novel fizzes with wit, warmth and the occasional custard pie. It is a festive celebration of 'The Great Bard' par excellence. Five o'clock and all's well in Merrie England. Simon (1904-48) was born in Manchuria, became one of Britain's most famous bridge players and was co-founder of the Acol System.

Caryl Brahms and S. Simon London: Michael Joseph, 1941. In an anticipation of the plot of the film Shakespeare in Love, Lady Viola Compton disguises herself as a boy, becomes a player, and falls in love with Shakespeare. In this version of history, the fire at the Globe theatre is started deliberately by the jealous Edward Alleyn and Philip Henslowe, and the book ends with the Essex rebellion and the first night of Twelfth Night at Court; Francises Drake and Bacon also appear, the latter scheming to acquire a bed that the Queen has slept in (hence the title).
